Stranded Colourwork Resources

At the May Yarn Club meeting we talked about Colourwork techniques with a focus on stranded knitting. I’ve rounded up some of the online resources I referred to in my talk below.

I got some great historical information from Lela Nargi’s book, Knitting Around the World: A Multistranded History of a Time-Honored Tradition.

BluPrint has some great online classes for starting or just perfecting your stranded knitting skills. I enjoyed:

  • Fairisle Fundamentals with Tanis Gray
  • Modern Stranded Knitting Techniques with Mary Jane Mucklestone
  • Custom Colorwork Techniques with Stephanie Tallent
  • Cut Your Knitting: Strand & Steek with Confidence with Beth Whiteside

You can learn more about colour choice, colour theory, and online colour resources (including my favourite, Design Seeds) in my post about our colour theory for knitters meeting. Find Part 2 of that post here.
