The Applegate Hat is a beautiful design that takes advantage of the multiple colors in Berroco's Millefiori Light to create a colorful design that looks more complicated than it really is. In this three-session class, we will cover the fundamentals of two-color stranded knitting, unlock the mysteries of colorwork charts, and demonstrate multiple methods of holding the colors so that you can discover the one that works best for you.

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner / Intermediate. To be successful in this class, knitters should be able to work the hat ribbing in the round on their own.

Homework: Please complete the hat ribbing, as described in the pattern, before the first session. Bring your hat ribbing on the needles to the first class.
