KCSK1: Stranded Knitting: KACO Fair Isle Hat

In this class you will learn that Fair Isle knitting is just a specific style of stranded knitting. Perhaps you have attempted stranded knitting and were frustrated with tension issues, or perhaps your colors didn’t pop and seemed to change slightly from row to row. This class will teach you multiple ways of managing two colors of yarn while knitting, how to identify color dominance and manage colors accordingly. You will also learn how to control tension, and manage floats.
