What do you do in stranded knitting when you have to work a large area of just one color? Traditionally, knitters will "catch" the other color behind the work, but it often peeks through to the right side. In this presentation, Sarah will demonstrate an alternate technique for floating colors behind the work, it's not intarsia and it originates from machine knitting techniques. Ladderback jacquard is quite simple and with just this class's introduction and information, you will be ready to cast on more difficult stranded colorwork with confidence.
Prerequisites: familiarity with knitting small circumferences in the round and working stranded colorwork from charted instructions.
No materials or homework.
2 student minimum
Instructor: Sarah Walworth
Sarah first learned to knit as a child from her mom, but re-learned as an adult when she needed a way to keep her hands busy. It quickly cascaded into re-writing patterns to fit her, learning innovative techniques, and trying all different ways to tension the yarn. She now makes her living as a knitting technical editor and loves to pass on the craft to whomever she can get to hold needles and yarn for a few minutes.
