Basics of Stranded Colorwork

Seaming confidence will open up an entire world of new patterns to knit! From stunning cowls & hats to gorgeous tops & sweaters. Bring 2 completed stockinette swatches, spare yarn & a tapestry needle to this workshop where you will learn how to create an invisible seam using the mattress stitch.

There will also be tips & tricks to master tension, as well as alignment, so this is a handy workshop even if you are familiar with seaming.
