Knitting, Intermediate (C/S172) | Allegany College of Maryland

Have you admired sweaters, mittens or hats with interesting color patterning and wished you knew how to do that kind of knitting? Well, this is your chance! If you can cast on, knit, purl and bind off, you can join in! We will explore three different color work techniques for knitting. First, we will use slipped stitches to make complex color patterning that is knit with one color of yarn per row. Easy! Next we will dive into stranded color work, like you might have seen on Fair Isle or Norwegian ski style sweaters. Finally we will explore intarsia, which is used to add bigger blocks of color on knitted fabric. Along the way we will make a series of hats using these different techniques. 


Plan on bringing four different colors of worsted weight yarn, about 200 yards of each color, wool or acrylic or a blend of wool and acrylic. Instructor will provide patterns used in the class.


You will also need:

  • A circular needle, 16 inch length, size 7 (or size needed for a gauge of about 4 ½ stitches to the inch)
  • A second circular needle in same size, any length (or a set of double point needles in the same size)
  • And a third circular needle, this one in size 4 or 5 and 16 inches
