Join us in the Knitwork and discover the joys and challenges of knitting colourwork! If you have been looking longingly at colourwork projects and not knowing how to start, then this online knitting course is for you. Learn all the skills you need to knit your first colourwork project and tackle the next one (and the next!) with confidence.

The Stranded Colourwork Basics course is a 4 week self-guided online knitting course, with continued access to the course so that you can return to each chapter for a refresher, again and again, whenever you need. The course is comprised of short, easy to digest videos and photo tutorials as well as a discussion group to ask questions and share your achievements with other knitters. This colourwork course also includes a complimentary copy of the Tyrie Hat pattern, which was designed to be the ideal starting point for those wishing to learn colourwork knitting.

We’ll begin by learning exactly what Stranded Colourwork is, how to follow a colourwork chart and practice managing knitting with two colours at the same time on a swatch. Using the Tyrie Hat as our principal guide project, we will then embark on our journey together into the magical world of colourwork knitting! The course will allow you to explore how to choose the right colours and yarn, as well as how colour dominance works in a pattern. We will then focus on managing tension, shaping in colourwork and how to hold multiple colours together without getting in a tangle and being left with too many ends.

By the end, you will have completed a hat pattern using stranded colourwork and have acquired the skills and techniques you need to take on your next colourwork project with confidence!
