Learn a new knitting technique and work stranded colorwork faster and with picture-perfect floats!
In this technique, we work in the round from the wrong side, always purling! This will improve the tension of your floats, making them perfect and without pulling the fabric. Even for beginners! We hold each color on one shoulder, so no more tangled yarns. This method is also a great choice for people experiencing pain from throwing or picking in other styles because only a little movement is needed to form the stitches (just a small flick on the left thumb). It will help you work stranded colorwork easier, faster, and with great results.
