Locked Floats in the Round



 

Ever looked at the "wrong side" of a stranded, hand-knit garment and see no floats? Do you wonder what was done to hide those floats and make it so beautifully finished? The answer may very well be what some refer to as "Armenian Knitting" or, what Kyle calls "Locked Floats". The technique is simple, and creates a wonderfully even fabric. In this special workshop, Kyle will introduce you to the technique and show you the steps necessary to create this fabric in the round in preparation for the release of the Unlocked Cowl KAL in March! Or use your new skills to join our Witching Hour Sweater KAL!
