Stranded colorwork is one of my favorite knitting techniques. It's so fun to use two or more colors to create a fun pattern on a hat, garment, or other knit piece. However, color work can be intimidating - especially when you first start knitting! I remember my first attempt at fair isle - to say it was a mess would be a drastic understatement! Over the last year or so I've become much more comfortable with color work. Here I'll share a few of the things that have helped me to improve my stranded knitting skills.
The pattern featured in this post is my Fair Diamonds Beanie. You can find it in my Ravelry Shop or in my Etsy shop. It is a quick & fun knit suitable for all skill levels.
