What’s the secret of even stranded colorwork? The floats.
This month teacher extraordinaire Jen Arnall-Culliford demonstrates tips and techniques of colorwork stranding. The Arnall-Culliford Knitwear Confident Knitting series pairs knit-it-now patterns with video tutorials to grow your skills and increase knitterly joy—and we’re delighted to share Jen’s lessons and the work of the splendid designers she’s gathered together.
