Color is usually the first thing that catches our attention in a knitted garment. That's why choosing the right palette is also the most exciting and also the most difficult part. In this workshop, Veera will guide you through the world of color: how to use it when knitting stranded colorwork, intarsia and stripes, how to choose the best combos for your projects and make it easy to work with them.

During the class, she will explain the basics of using color in knitting, what techniques to use, how to get the most out of combinations, and introduce you to the history of colorwork in knitting.

Content of the workshop:

  • Colorwork in yarns
  • Intarsia
  • Stripes

Required material:

  • Small balls. They can be leftovers from previous projects, in a variety of colors.
