Gauge-size DPNs or Flexiflips. Suggested needle size: US 4/3.5 mm. This class teaches you everything you need to know about colorwork in a nutshell. You will be making either my Sørinne Slippers or my Sterne or Olsen Slipper from The Nordic Knitting Primer. This is an intensive colorwork class. Knitters will learn how to knit and purl with two colors at once by holding the yarn in one hand or in two hands. You will learn how and when and why to catch floats. Learn to read charts. How to decrease in colorwork, and my favorite longtail cast on, and how to join seamlessly in the round. You will improve your DPN/flexiflip skills. We learn about gauge and sizing. And learn how to do a Norwegian braid to finish off the slippers. After making these slippers, you will have the colorwork skills to knit anything you want in colorwork.
Skill level: Intermediate. If you are an enthusiastic beginner and you know how to knit and purl with confidence, you can take this class.
Materials: 1 skein MC and 1 skein CC of Fleece and Harmony Selkirk Worsted (optional 3rd contrasting color for tvinnarand edge)
