If you have trouble with stranded colorwork - it’s too tight, not flexible, catches on fingers or jewelry, or generally just doesn’t look good or feel comfortable, this is the class for you! Ladderback jacquard stranding, originally developed & used for machine knitting, is a version of double-knitting with only a one-stitch column. This technique can used in the round or flat! It is particularly useful for motifs in which a single color is carried more than an inch, or when you need a stretchy, flexible garment such as a hat or cowl. This technique is easy to learn & apply to any stranded colorwork pattern! 

This is the perfect jumping off point for other stranded colorwork with long floats. for example Passerine Hat and the Baa-ble Hat
