Colorwork is an important step in a knitter’s arsenal of capabilities. 
This workshop is a skill building class that focuses on creating panels of wonderful stitch patterns using different colors.
The class meets once a month for 10 months.  In each meeting, you begin a panel. Students are guided through the various stitches and techniques each month as their knitting knowledge grows.
The class covers intarsia, short rows, mosaic knitting, butterfly stitch, intarsia cable, tuck stitch and so much more!
After the 10 months, you have 10 amazing panels, which fit together into a stunning afghan, showcasing all that you have learned.

This is a engaging and fun project which you share with your classmates!
 With a different skill focus each month there is something new to learn every time we meet.
