In this workshop we will learn the technique of knitting with two colours in one row. We will knit a swatch on a circular needle. You will learn:
- How to knit a magic loop
- How to hold a thread at the same time with your left and with your right hand
- How to alternately knit with your left hand (the pattern colour) and with your right hand (the background colour)
- How to weave in a thread when you have to cross more then 5 stitches
- Steeking (at the end of the class we will cut open the swatch!)
