Level 2: You can cast on, knit, purl, and bind off

Do you love variegated and gradient yarns, but you're not sure how to work with them? Come learn how to choose and use these beautiful yarns with Seattle designer Cory Ellen, in the second workshop of her series on knitterly color play. (You do not need to have taken Part I to attend!) In this workshop, we’ll start with the basics of color theory, look at different types of variegation and gradients, and discuss what kinds of stitch patterns and design elements will make these yarns shine. We’ll also have the opportunity to look at lots of swatches and samples up close, for examples of variegated and gradient yarns knit into different types of projects. In the hands-on section of class, we’ll knit swatches using three different variegation-friendly stitch patterns, to see which one makes your yarn the happiest. And, as a handy reminder of the topics we cover, each student will receive a handout with helpful terms, photo examples, and tips on how approach variegated & gradient yarns and projects. You’ll take home: Color Play! Variegation & Gradients handout, swatch instructions, and swatch.

Materials needed: One or more skeins of variegated DK-weight yarn (one skein of gradient, optional) for swatching, stitch markers, and cable needle. In-class handout and swatch instructions are provided.

Recommended needles: Size 5 or 6 US (3.75 or 4 mm) 24” (61 cm) circular needles, or preferred needles for working flat.
