KNIT ME WITH COLORS: Fun with gradients and Self-Spinning Yarns with Kathy Konecki

May 9 - May 23, 2017
5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The beauty of the self-striping, gradient and ombre yarns available in today is undeniable, yet they can pose challenging choices for color transitions and knitting styles. In this class you will learn the differences in these yarns, and how to match your yarn choice with the patterns you want to knit. While knitting, you will be guided to learn various techniques for elegant color changing.


Gradient yarn kits, which include 5 mini skeins, are available to purchase at EVFAC.
