Ladderback Jacquard

Long Floats in stranded colorwork can be a knitter's nemesis!  The Ladderback Jacquard (LBJ) technique is often a game changer to manage long floats invisibly and with even tension.  In this class, you will learn how to incorporate the LBJ technique into any stranded colorwork project.  We will cover where and how to create a LBJ stitch when floats get long and then how to remove this stitch when it's no longer needed.  Voila - your colorwork may have never looked so tidy!  We will create the charming I'll Pack A Cowl for Rhinebeck for a great opportunity to practice all aspects of this technique.

Skill Requirements: Solid comfort with stranded colorwork in the round and reading colorwork charts.
