Unwind Knitwear – Rachel Illsley | Exploring Colourwork

Exploring Colourwork

If you love to knit with colorwork, this workshop is for you. Rachel has designed it in detail, thinking of those knitters who already have experience knitting with two colors and want to take their skills to the next level.

To start, she will review the “best practices” for working with two-color colorwork and give you some tips for solving common problems. Next, you will be able to practice with a swatch: side and lattice braids, Inlay Knitting and colorwork with two and three colors. The sample will be worked in the round and, if you wish, you can continue after the workshop to form a tubular collar.
