Learn to knit colorwork!
Stranded colorwork is everywhere these days. Bitten by the colorwork bug? Look no further than our suite of courses from Kyle Kunnecke. His Introduction to Stranded Knitting course grounds you in the basics, PLUS you get a nifty tutorial on Armenian knitting, or how to lock your floats. Find out why you shouldn’t be freaked by steeks, or learn to start designing your own colorful cowl patterns.
Check out courses from Faina Goberstein: Basic Brioche & Beyond teaches you one of my all-time favorite stitches, and Bold Brioche Cables is for those of you who want a deeper dive into this amazing stitch. Faina is obsessed with knitting brioche and slip stitches of all kinds, but her other obsession is the proper finishing of your knitting projects. Sophisticated Finishing Techniques will have you sewing perfect seams and setting sleeves flawlessly.
Let’s get technical.
There are a LOT of numbers in knitting. Maybe you’re hesitant to substitute yarns or wrangle with gauge. Maybe you get frustrated when you try to modify patterns to fit better, or maybe you want to start writing patterns yourself, but you need some guidance. We’ve teamed with author, instructor, and tech-editor Kate Atherley to create an entire suite of courses that demystify the more technical aspects of knitting. Maybe you are not a beginner and don’t to learn to knit – but how about learning how to fix mistakes? She covers that, too!
Joni Coniglio, Project Editor at Interweave and the Great Graftsby herself, is an expert on all things grafting. Check out all 3 of her grafting courses, which include basic Kitchener stitch, ribbings, and fancy-schmancy lace patterns (Just don’t do them all in one day. Trust me.)
