Hello, Craft Enthusiast!
Interweave Knitting

This month in Interweave Knitting, we're exploring the power of knit and purl. Those are really the only stitches you need to work stranded colorwork, though there are some other key techniques that make it a significant level up! Melissa Leapman shares her best tips for knitting with two colors at a time.

    We have an amazing selection of tours in Ireland, Scotland and Shetland Islands. Explore such places as the unspoiled Aran Islands on the west coast of Ireland, famous of course for the Aran Sweater! Or take a trip with us to the stunning Shetland Islands, synonymous with the Fair Isle knitting techniques that we all know and love. Travel in safety and comfort with knitters not exceeding 25 per tour. While on tour, for your safety and comfort we will follow all appropriate local safety precautions. Book soon to avoid disappointment!

           

      When a project involves both single-color and stranded colorwork sections, there's likely to be a difference in gauge between the two. What causes this gauge difference, and how can you avoid it? Let's look at the structural differences between plain and stranded stockinette with Roxanne Richardson and learn to compensate.

             

        If you want to make yarn substitutions, create your own color palettes, or design your own colorwork patterns, you may have come up against a lack of formal knowledge of color. That was definitely the case for Nancy Shroyer, and she put together some great tips to navigate the color wheel and put it to use in your knitting.
