Strange Brew - Beginning Colorwork Sweater Class



This class will take you step-by-step from planning to completion of your first stranded colorwork sweater. We will use the brilliant “Strange Brew” book by Tin Can Knits as a guide for this class. They have done the design work and (lots of) math to create easy-to-follow patterns and templates. We get to add our imagination! This tends to be a flexible class with tons of inspiration, fun, and camaraderie along the way. The focus of this class will be knitting a top down, seamless colorwork sweater in the size of your choice (newborn to adult). You can choose one of the patterns already in the book, or create your own motifs. Questions prior to the start of class can be directed to Jacquie at knitsmuch@gmail.com.

Skill Requirements

  • This is an intermediate class.
  • Students should be comfortable with knitting and purling in the round, basic increases. Basic experience with stranded colorwork knitting is recommended. Some working knowledge about sweater construction will be helpful.
  • There will be a chance to briefly review stranded colorwork techniques (eg. managing colors, tension, color dominance) in the first class, and practice in your swatch.
  • Brand new to stranded colorwork? The “Beginning Stranded Colorwork” class is a great way to develop your technique without the commitment of a full garment. https://www.acornstreet.com/module/class/472724/beginning-stranded-colorwork
