One 1-hour Session
Learn how to triple up a lace weight yarn to create a thicker fabric project or to intersperse thick and thin strands to create a lacey versus dense texture. Students will work a few rows of knitting in a lacey/loose knit with a fine yarn, then triple the stranded by using the Navajo (chain-ply) technique and then back to thin again. Learn tricks for switching between single and triple strands partially across the rows to create interesting textures.
Buy or Bring Materials: Lace weight yarn, US 8 straight or circular needles (and a few extra sizes is recommended to adjust gauge if needed)
Skill level: Intermediate Participants must be able to knit and purl confidently.
