Stranded Knitting Portuguese Style



Stranded Knitting Portuguese Style - $49 - 3 Hours - Instructor: Teresa Waldo

Saturday, February 1st 10am to 1pm

Come learn a way to do stranded knitting with just a flick of your left thumb! You will be amazed at how ergonomically comfortable and physically efficient this method is, how even your stitches are, how perfectly tensioned your floats are, and how easy it is to manage two colors of yarn without tangling. You may never again want to do stranded colorwork any other way! We will be knitting the two-color Blossom Dreams Ear Warmer using the Portuguese purl stitch and working with the wrong side of our work facing us. Our yarns will be tensioned by two hooks attached to our shirts.

Supplies: Please bring to class 100 yards of worsted weight yarn for your background color (a solid or semi-solid), 80 yards of a highly contrasting yarn for the floral pattern, size US7-16” circular needles, tapestry needle, scissors and stitch markers. We will provide pattern and two knitting hooks.
