Stranded Skill Developer Class

Description

The Stranded Skill Developer Class gives you a full introduction to the stranded technique, taking your skill level through from beginner to intermediate while making two berets and two sets of fingerless gloves. The Briodag also introduces openwork and short-row shaping in the form of a scarf. If you are a complete beginner to knitting you can add the optional Beginners Yarn Pack to your order below. This will provide the extra yarn required for practising your basic techniques. Use our free Video Tutorials section for step-by-step guidance on cast-on methods, and how to knit, purl, and cast off. When you are comfortable with these basic techniques you will be ready to start your Briodag Hat Set, which will introduce you to openwork, stranded- colour knitting and shaping in the round. When you have completed the Briodag you will be ready to move on to the more complex colour changes and the buttoned glove cuff of the Henry VIII set. By the time you are finished you will be ready to tackle larger projects. This kit does not include needles. please see the accordian menu below for a list of the needles required.
