2 Strings = Not Scary
In this introduction to stranded colorwork, we'll learn the basic moves for handling two strands at the same time, and what is special about the construction of stranded colorwork. We will practice stranding by swatching in class and then begin a stranded colorwork hat pattern. No stranding experience is necessary.

- Yarn: 3-5 contrasting colors of DK weight yarn
- Needles: 16" (40cm) circular needle and DPNs in the same size. Aim for a gauge of about 6 stitches/inch on size US size 4 (3.5mm) needles. Gauge is approximate because stranding will change the gauge as we work.
- Scissors or yarn snips
- Your Knit and Crochet Tool Kit
- Determine a rough starting gauge by knitting a single-color stockinette swatch. Using a needle one size smaller than the one used for your gauge swatch, CO 128 stitches and join for knitting in rounds. Work 2 rounds in K1 P1 rib (or edging of your choice).
