Colourwork knitting encompasses many different styles and techniques of incorporating multiple colours into a single knitted piece. In this workshop, we'll be looking at the techniques for traditional stranded colourwork and how to make it modern through motif, texture, and colour. We'll be looking at working with hand-dyed colours in a colourwork piece as well as the challenges of using popular superwash-treated yarns for colourwork projects.
Here's what you can look forward to learning about in Modern Colourwork Knitting:
- Correcting some common misconceptions about colourwork knitting. For example: not all colourwork is fair isle and not all colourwork is stranded.
- Special considerations while using hand-dyed yarns in colourwork projects
- Special considerations while using Superwash yarns in colourwork projects and how steeking works
- Discussing colour dominance and how it affects your colourwork project
