Boost Your Knitting: Choosing Colors for Stranded Colorwork
I love this video so much—a visit with two clever knitwear designers, Felicity Ford and Jen Arnall-Culliford. Grab a sock to finish and settle in for a half hour conversation with these wonderful women.
They’re exploring colorwork—playing with skeins and seeing what works.
Felicity, or Felix as she’s often called, creates joyful stranded colorwork designs. Her Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook is a classic guide, and in this video we get an introduction to her method of working with a lot of color.
I can’t recall the last time I saw colorwork swatches like the ones Felix waves around in this video. They combine light and dark, hue and value. They look impossible. But Felix’s message? They’re not!
This Boost Your Knitting video tutorial is great fun no matter where you are on your journey of playing with color.
Fascinating to see what happens when you switch up the color choices.
Boost Your Knitting is a rich resource for new techniques and engaging designs.
