Level: Beginner
Instructor: Elizabeth Green Musselman
Prerequisites: Students must know how to cast on, knit stitch, and how to bind off.
DESCRIPTION:Have you always wanted to try a fair isle project and weren't sure how to begin? Stranded knitting (which includes fair isle) means working with two colors in each row. This class will teach you the keys to success with stranded knitting, including how to read color charts, how to keep your stitches even, and how to work with two yarns at once.

Your green thumb will get some exercise in this beginner level class.
