Stranded in Your Hat with Mary Scott Huff
Read Mary Scott Huff's bio here!
In this introduction to stranded colorwork, we will learn the basic moves for handling two
strands at the same time, and what is special about the construction of stranded colorwork.
We will practice stranding by swatching in class, then begin this stranded colorwork hat
pattern. No stranded knitting experience is necessary!
Skill Level: Intermediate: Basic knitting skills; cast on, bind off, knit, purl, increase, decrease, knitting in the round.
Materials to bring: Please bring
3-5 contrasting colors of DK weight yarn
MC Lodestone 1 ball or 100 yds
CC1 The Green That Sings 1 ball or 65 yds
CC2 Midsummers' Night 1 ball or 25 yds
CC3 Sun Stone 1 ball or 15 yds
CC4 Meet Brown, Joe 1 ball or 10 yds
16” (40 cm) circular needles to match. Aim for a gauge in the neighborhood of 6 sts/in on size 4 (3.5mm) needles. Gauge is approximate because stranding will change it as we work.
Homework: Determine a rough starting gauge by knitting a single-color stockinette swatch. Using a needle 1 size smaller than the one used for your gauge swatch, CO 128 sts and join for knitting in rounds. Work 2 rounds in k1 p1 rib (or edging of your choice).
