Creating and Navigating Complex Stranded Knitting Charts

March 1, 2017
12:30 to 3:30 pm
Luther Burbank Garden Center, 2050 Yulupa Avenue, Santa Rosa, CA

Have you ever thought of creating original color work designs? Kyle has perfected his own technique to create original to-scale charts for complex color work that is especially suited to non-repeating patterns. Using visual displays and samples, Kyle discusses scale, composition, and types of designs that work best for this technique. Kyle will walk participants through each step from design inspiration to navigating knitting from these large charts. Participants will put their newly learned skills to work by beginning to knit a color work cowl that requires navigating a complex chart and will leave this workshop with all the knowledge needed to complete their amazing color work cowl.

Redwood Guild members $25; non Redwood Guild members $35. There is a material fee of $3.

Materials: worsted weight, solid color wool (such as Cascade 220) in two coordinating colors, circular
needles, pen/pencil and notepaper.
