Class Overview

Add a variety of bold, eye-catching motifs to your knits alongside expert colorwork knitting instructor Mary Jane Mucklestone. Begin by building a foundation of stranded knitting skills before learning how to cast on, read charts and construct ribbing in the round. With the basics down, start stitching a gorgeous diagonal pattern and see how to choose yarns that complement instead of compete. Move on to working small, stunning motifs while keeping even tension and playing with design through two-color shapes and background patterns. Ready to modernize traditional motifs? Discover how to work bold, graphic designs with thick worsted-weight yarn and use them to create a stunning, contemporary star motif. Finally, apply your new skills with a multi-colored, textured cowl project and learn how to block in the round.
