Meet Tanis Gray! Tanis starts class with every knitter's favorite topic: color. Follow along for some helpful pointers that will help you choose the hues that best express your project, purpose and even mood.
Make sure you're choosing the right fiber for your Fair Isle. Tanis guides you through the effects of yarn on the texture and durability of your knits, before breaking down chart-reading in the round.
Managing multiple strands can get messy, but not with Tanis' tips. Discover how to hold multiple strands of yarn, controlling which colors are dominant to get the look you want.
Keep the even tension you need to make every row look perfect. Tanis shows you several methods for trapping floats and shares her secrets for preventing (and fixing!) any puckers that might pop up.
Once you've got the fundamentals down, it's time to practice with a fun project. Tanis walks you step by step through a color-packed hat, including the ribbed brim, decreasing in pattern and blocking your piece to perfection.
Want more Fair Isle? Class ends with a few extras that are sure to come in handy: fixing missed spots of color, using jogless joins for flawless rings in the round, and even steeking.
