Latvian Braid and Other Clever Twists with Amy Snell
Welcome to the world of inventive twists on colorwork! In this class we’ll learn both right- and left-leaning Latvian braid, Vikkel braids, and a few other tricks that will bring life and zest to your colorwork projects, including an easy and elegant new two-color cast-on.
To work along with the demonstrations, you will want to have on hand approximately 30 yards each of a dark and a light-colored worsted-weight yarn, and needles you usually use for worsted weight yarn suitable for working small-circumference projects in the round (dpns, magic loop, or two circulars).
Amy Snell is a knitter, instructor, and designer with an eye for the unusual or unusually captivating. Her designs focus on color, contrast, and texture, often exploring unique stitch patterns and clever construction in ways that are interesting but accessible.
Amy loves to help other knitters explore new techniques and expand the way they think about their knitting. Her goal is to make complex concepts approachable for all knitters, while sharing tips that improve your process whether you’ve been knitting for several weeks or several decades. Amy teaches at national events such as Vogue Knitting Live, Stitches, and Rhinebeck, and frequently shares tips and tricks on her website, www.DeviousKnitter.com.
