Knit a neckwarmer based on traditional sweater patterns from Vörå in western Finland. The class will focus on techniques used to knit stranded colorwork in the round on circular needles: yarn tension, catching floats, color dominance, reading and adapting a pattern, finishing, and more. Anyone who is able to knit and purl is welcome to register. No experience with colorwork knitting required. The class fee includes instruction and the neckwarmer pattern designed exclusively for this class. Students must bring their own circular needles and yarn. The pattern sample was knit on US7 9” circumference circular needles with two colors of worsted weight yarn.
