Strand = Traditional two-handed knitting using more than one colour of yarn

Steek = Steek stitches are in addition to your knit in the round patterned colourwork. Once your knitting is complete, the steek stitches mark the way for you to cut your work open so that it is now flat piece of knitting. Several methods of finishing those raw edges will be discussed and the by hand method will be used.

This class is a project driven workshop where traditional two-handed stranded knitting is taught. The morning unit will begin with a quick tutorial on continental knitting to enable participants to carry yarn in both hands.

We will continue with a discussion on colour theory and colour dominance.
The project will feature a set of 4 Fair Isle Coasters mixing and matching charted colourwork patterns. The Steeking process will follow.
