Beginner Stranded Colorwork Workshop

First Colorwork Cowl by Jared Flood,
Brooklyn Tweed Shelter

Learn how to do stranded colorwork in our 2 week Beginner Stranded Colorwork Workshop!

The workshop is open to everyone, however it is geared toward knitters who have little to no experience with stranded colorwork or those who would like to brush up on their skills prior to the Arne & Carlos visit.

In this project-based workshop you will learn about the history of stranded colorwork knitting, fiber & color selection, as well as how to hold/manage the yarn to achieve gorgeous colorwork patterns.

The complimentary workshop will take place Sunday, October 2 & 9 from 11am-12pm. The two sessions are linked, so we recommend you attend both for the best experience.

The project is the First Colorwork Cowl by Jared Flood. This is a wonderful pattern to learn stranded colorwork. The cowl may be knit in Brooklyn Tweed Shelter for a more classic look or Brooklyn Tweed Tones for a modern twist.
