Top-Down Stranded Yoke Workshop with Jenn Steingass
Date: Saturday, August 18, 2018 from
Time: 12:30-5:00 pm (including 30-minute break)
In this final workshop of our Summer Designer Series, you will learn how to make a two-color stranded yoke by knitting one of Jenn’s designs into a sample-sized yoke. You will learn about yoke construction styles and their advantages and disadvantages, including Jenn’s preferred invisible increase method. Jenn will discuss how fit styles, ease, waist shaping and short-row shaping affects the fit of a sweater, and how to choose a flattering sweater size.
A yoke design is dependent upon color and how you choose to use it. Jenn will review the color wheel and aspects of color theory including contrast, value, darkness and lightness. You’ll also learn about yarn dominance and how to get better looking colorwork while avoiding a tangle of yarn as you knit.
