This day-long class is the only instruction you'll need for a lifetime of beautifully crafted and well-fitting colorwork hats from Scandinavian design superstars Arne and Carlos. You'll learn the designers' tips and tricks to take your stranded knitting to the next level as well as learn about the history and uses of traditional Norwegian stranded colorwork. A project like this is a great way to perfect your stranded knitting in the round. As long as you know how to knit and purl, and have some experience with stranded colorwork, this class is made for you! The most interesting part of the class will be to work with a yarn that is not traditionally used for colorwork. Knitting the hat in Kidsilk Haze combined with Felted Tweed may seem an unusual choice, but using two ends of the mohair yarn blended with tweed works beautifully for Fair Isle knitting and gives the traditional Norwegian look a new, updated, and modern twist.

Prerequisite: Students should have some stranded colorwork experience; and should be able to knit, purl, increase, decrease, and have familiarity with circular knitting. NOTE: Magic Loop or 2 Circular needles may be used in place of DPNs.
