Siksak Colorwork Hat
Sat 12/14 & 12/21
Are you wanting to get into the exciting world of stranded colorwork, but scared to tackle working with two yarns at a time? This hat is a great first colorwork hat, and a small enough project that you can have it done before the holidays!
Prerequisites: advanced beginner -- comfortable with knit and purl, cast on, and bind off
Homework: cast on 108 stitches with main color, using size US 4 needles. Join in the round and work k2, p2 ribbing for 6 inches. Please ask if you need help getting started!
Skills Learned: colorwork/stranded knitting, small-circumference knitting, yarn management
Materials Required: You will need the following in sport or DK-weight yarn:
• 75 g of main colour (MC)
• 25 g of contrast colour 1 (CC1)
• 3 x 10 g of three other contrast colours (CC2, CC3, CC4)
Make sure there is enough contrast for the colorwork to show. You will need either a set of dpns or a 40" circular needle (for magic loop) in sizes US 4 and US 7. Pattern is free and available at time of class.
All class materials must be purchased from Warm n Fuzzy.
