Workshop: Two Colour Latvian Braid


Add a little flair to your mitten cuffs or hat with a two-colour braid. Like many knitting techniques, it’s easier than it looks. It’s made with rows of knit and purl, with yarn carried along.

Take a two-hour workshop to get the hang of making a braid and give your Christmas presents a little more pizzazz. NOTE: in two hours, we will make several braids on a sampler. You will not have a finished item to take home.

  • ability to knit and purl
  • ability to cast on
  • willingness (or experience) to knit with two colours of yarn (stranded knitting)
