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: Double Knitting
With double knitting, you can make astonishing double-sided designs. The sky's absolutely the limit.
All you have to learn to do is make a stitch of one color on the front and a stitch of the other color on the back, for each stitch on your chart. Understanding how to do this and getting your hands to do it can be a little tricky.
That's why I've created a 19-video step-by-step video course to teach you this super-fun color-knitting technique.
