Norwegian stranded color work is all about tension. In this class, you will learn the basics of Norwegian style stranded knitting with 2 colors from expert Nordic knitters ARNE & CARLOS, who will show you the easiest and most relaxing way to hold the needles and the yarns, and teach you important techniques and tricks that will help you achieve perfect tension while keeping all your stitches even and beautiful, in true Norwegian style! We will work with bulky yarn and thick needles and practice our color work techniques while knitting a hat with the traditional X and O pattern, which is the easiest Norwegian pattern that you could possibly work with. Whether you are an inexperienced or experienced knitter, if you have ever wanted to learn how to knit stranded color work as it is done in the Norway and the other Nordic countries, by master knitters who come from that part of the world, this is the class for you!
