Try this intriguing complex color-work knitting stitch for cushy reversible fabric and you may be hooked! Learn the unusual colors-in-columns stitch called “knit one below” using only one color yarn at a time, no stranding required. The stitch looks like a vertical rib, but it isn’t, and looks like a type of Brioche stitch, but is worked differently. Some reviewers call it “tricky” but we call it “slow knitting” and will teach you how to succeed! Using a pattern that works well as a scarf or cowl, participants will learn not only this unique stitch, but also adding a second color in-pattern and an interesting cast-on and bind-off. After this class, you’ll be ready to tackle most of the beautiful projects in Elise Duvekot’s book Knit One Below.
