New Nordic Knitting - An Introduction to Norwegian Stranded Colour Work

Saturday Nov. 2nd 2:00-5:00pm

Location: University Golf Club at 5185 University Blvd., Vancouver, BC

Norwegian stranded colour work is all about tension. In this class, you will learn the basics of Norwegian style stranded knitting with 2 colours from expert Nordic knitters ARNE & CARLOS, who will show you the easiest and most relaxing way to hold the needles and the yarns, and teach you important techniques and tricks that will help you achieve perfect tension while keeping all of your stitches even and beautiful, in true Norwegian style! We will work with bulky yarn and thick needles and practice our colour work techniques while knitting a hat with the traditional X and O pattern, which is the easiest Norwegian pattern that you could possibly work with. Whether you are an inexperienced or experienced knitter, if you have ever wanted to learn how to knit stranded colour work as it is done in the Norway and the other Nordic countries, by master knitters who come from that part of the world, this is the class for you!

Yarn (not included):
2 balls of ROWAN Cocoon in contrasting colours of your choice. Samples pictured above are 1 ball of colour #801 Polar and 1 ball of colour #813 Seascape (Urban Yarns will be restocking #801 Polar soon!)

Needles (not included):
1 circular needle size 6mm / US 10, length 40cm / 16"
1 circular needle size 6.5mm / US 10.5, length 40cm / 16"
1 set of 5 double-pointed needles (DPNs) size 6.5mm / US 10.5

With smaller size circular needle and your main colour, cast on 64 stitches. Join in the round, and work in k2, p2 ribbing for 10 rows.

Level of knitting proficiency required:
Knitting skills needed. Participants should be able to knit, purl and decrease. This project is suitable for intermediate knitters as well as advanced knitters who want to learn Norwegian stranded colour work or who want to improve on their colour work skills.

Important Note:
We will be focusing on stranded colour work techniques, so please do not expect to finish the entire hat in the class, as the hat itself may take longer than 3 hours to complete. However, ARNE & CARLOS will give you lots of tips to take home with you, so you can finish later.
