Curious about the latest buzz word in knitting, helical? Made popular recently when working with 2 skeins of hand dyed yarns. This technique keeps hand dyed yarns, which typically don’t have dye lots from pooling or showing a demarcation line. This skill is also used in knitting stripes to create a jogless join.
In this class you’ll learn the technique by knitting a striped child’s hat. The contrasting colors make it easy to see the process and follow along.
2 skeins: 1 light color and 1 dark color of Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok worsted 50g, 16” US size 6 needle, stitch marker, and scissors.
Using brim color, cast on 84 sts, place marker and join for knitting in the round. Work in knit 2, purl 2 rib for 10 rounds. Leave yarn attached and you’re ready for class.
