Are you already proficient in short rows and want to kick it up another notch? Learn how to knit backwards and make your leaf shapes without turning your work back and forth.
Leaves In A Stream plays with color in a way that pairs beautifully with yarns that have long gradual color changes like Freia Fibers Ombre' Shawl Balls. Experience the joys of color work without weaving in tons of ends or managing floats. Each row is worked with a single color and the unused color will be carried up the side without breaking the yarn.
Students should know the knit stitch, Knit 2 together, slip slip knit, knit in the front and back of the loop, and knit through the back loop.
