This is a three part class. You should be familiar with Magic Loop knitting - if not please contact me before the class for a tutorial.
The first class is a quick lecture on the difference between Intarsia, Fair Isle, Duplicate Stitch, and Mosaic knitting. Then we will practice how to work Fair Isle knitting using one color in each hand and we will explore techniques for tensioning with both hands. Then we will cast on using Jenny's Magic Cast on and get started on the chart.
Class Two is just a check in to see how we are doing!
Class Three is Intarsia, we will knit a flap for the front of the pillow using Intarsia colorwork techniques.
The class if free but you will need to buy a kit. There are three colors to choose from. Click here to shop.
You will also need: US 3 needle in 40" length - or needle to get gauge. Stitch Markers - have a handful around 10 on hand. 3 Bobbins Darning Needle Scissors Stuffing or pillow form. The pillow will be approximately 10" square but this will vary by tension.
Gauge: 6.5 sts per inch on a US 3 in st st in the round.
You should be comfortable with knitting in the round. Exposure to magic loop is helpful.
