Do you know how to knit and purl, but want to expand your skills. This incredibly striking sampler afghan is the perfect way to learn different stitches and techniques that make up the mystical world of colorwork!

Over the course of the class, you will gain confidence managing several colors at a time while knitting ten different panels: intarsia, short rows, slipped stitches, knit below, elongated stitches, mosaic, tuck stitch, and the butterfly stitch.

After the panels are knit, you will learn how to finish the afghan by blocking and seaming the panels. The final step is knitting the border.

Building in Color is a skill building class that has students knitting a different strip every month that can be seamed together to create a lovely sampler afghan.

The finished size of the afghan is approximately 52” wide by 42” tall. It is possible to modify the height by knitting shorter panels and modify the width by knitting fewer panels.  For example, to make a baby blanket you could knit five panels.
