About This Class

Welcome dear makers!

Hope that you are healthy and safe.It is with great pleasure that I publish my second class :)

The aim of this class is to teach you how to knit with 2 colours, using the Portuguese Knitting Technique.

I will teach you:

  • How to hold the 2 skeins of yarn
  • How to read the pattern
  • How to knit with 2 colours
  • How to purl with 2 colours
  • What is a float
  • How to catch a float

For this lesson you will need:

  • 2 skeins of yarn, in different colours
  • Knitting needles – easier if straight needles. Check the label of the yarn for the needle size recommendations.
  • Scissor
  • Tapestry needle
  • Row counter or pencil

I recommend that you practice first the Portuguese Knitting Technique with just 1 skein of yarn, before you jump to add the second colour! Please check my previous class for more details about the Portuguese Knitting Technique!

Hope that this class can be useful for your crafts and makings! Thank you all for watching my videos!

Wish you happy and cozy knittings!

Keep Knitting and enjoy the videos!
