Stranded Knitting: Unlocking the Secret of Locked Floats



Ever looked at the "wrong side" of a stranded, hand-knit garment and seen 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 we call "Locked Floats". The technique is simple, and creates a wonderfully even fabric. 

In this class, we will first review how to carry floats across the back of the work (traditional), and then be introduced to this simple technique that results in a beautifully woven "wrong side". You’ll learn some valuable tricks and leave inspired by the possibilities created.

The Class Fee includes: a three-hour instructional workshop. You will also receive a one-time 10% off discount for all in-store merchandise including Makers' Cafe on the day of the class.
