Introduction to Colorwork



Ready to take the plunge into colorwork? Maybe you are looking to improve your colorwork skills? Perhaps you are doing colorwork one handed and would like to learn where you do not have to drop the yarn when changing colors. Lori is here to help you learn the two handed technique and charts on a small project in one session. This headband is a great project to learn working with two hands and tension.
