Don't Get Trapped! Colorwork Hat
Take your two-color stranding knitting to the next level! In this class you'll learn how to hide floats with NO trapping. Yes, without trapping! We will create a scaffold on the inside of the fabric to hold floats without them showing through on the right side. This is an advance-level class, and students need to have proficiency in two-color stranding, using double-pointed needles, knitting in the round, and chart reading.
