If you’ve been intimidated by colourwork, or if the thought of cutting your knitting fills you with dread, this is the class for you! ¬†Make a low stakes cozy, like a sweater for your coffee cup, and learn all the steps involved.

You’ll learn how to read a stranded colourwork chart to make a classic fair-isle pattern and then we’ll go through the steps to steek your piece using a crocheted reinforcement.
