About this experience

Enter the world of colorwork knitting! Learn the difference between stranded and intarsia knitting, as well as various tips to keep complex and colorful patterns both easy and fun. In this class you will learn how to read a colorwork chart and how to construct an image in your knitting from start to finish.

We will provide you with worsted weight yarn in a variety of colors for working on your samples and own image construction. You will use your own US size 7, 8, or 9 needles (straight or circular are fine!).

JESS BALLANCE's (@hashtagjessknits) knitting journey began with being taught by her grandmother and for a time, had ended with a scarf full of holes. After picking it back up during a particularly trying finals season at university, Jess went on to perfect scarves, sans holes, and can now knit almost anything from socks to stuffed animals. For Jess, knitting has proved to be a wonderful escape and an excellent remedy to anxious hands. In the new year, she hopes to tackle brioche knitting and more complex colorwork, as well as being a part of the wonderful community at Wild Hand!
