Add color to your project while still working with only one color at a time. This workshop is all about creating patterning with color the easy way.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 14 days following the event.
There are SO MANY different ways to create colorful knits with slipped stitches. You can work them flat or in-the-round. Try them in stockinette, garter, and even mixed textured fabrics! Think of slip-stitch patterns as mosaic OR as stripes that sometimes blur the lines. Jill will show you how to use slipped stitches in a myriad of ways to generate a limitless array of stitch patterns.
