Recommended Course: Color Knitting
Without venturing into and mastering the world of color-knitting, you deprive yourself of the ability to knit the word's most striking designs. Patterned two-and-three-color sweaters (called Fair-Isle) are a classic project, and Brioche's stunning stripes are quickly becoming the knitting world's most popular challenge.
In addition, knitting with two and three colors teaches you tension skills that will improve every area of your knitting. Our four color-knitting courses take you from doubting your ability to even hold onto two yarns at once to being a practiced color-knitter ready to take on eye-popping single- and double-sided designs.
Recommended Course: Brioche Knitting
Brioche stitch makes a double-sided fabric that looks similar to ribbing but is easier to do in two colors. Once you know the brioche stitch you can make any knitted garment using it, be it hats, sweaters, scarves, and more.
