Do you like subtle, understated colourwork? In this class, you’ll learn how to work two-handed colourwork using dominant and recessive colours, and how to create texture using purl stitches with techniques inspired by Bohus knitting.
We will learn by doing by working on a hat that uses these colourwork techniques. You will also see a demonstration of steeking, with details of how to use it and how to finish them in larger colourwork projects.
