Wondering how to make those fancy horizontal braids you see on knitted sweaters, hats, and cowls? Let’s take the mystery out of the process and learn how to do two-color, left- and right-leaning Latvian braids as well as one-color horizontal Vikkel braids. A lesson on Cori’s two-color cast-on is also included in this hands-on skill-building class where participants can decide to start a Choose Your Own Path hat or a cowl.
Participants should have 2 colors of worsted-weight wool yarn (one light and one dark works best; 50 grams are sufficient, so scraps may be used), and 2 size 7–8 16″ circular knitting needles.
