Color Theory Class

Beatrice Perron Dahlen of Thread and Ladle will be a guest teacher at our February guild meeting! She will be teaching us about color theory in our knitting.

Have you ever been unsure of how to choose colors for a project? Color can be a lot of fun where you have some foundational knowledge of how colors play together in different projects. We’ll talk about color blocks, stripes and colorwork and how colors play differently in all these types of knits. We’ll use paper to test out some different color schemes, and then we’ll dive into knitting with our new knowledge of color theory!


• Bring ALL the odds and ends you have in fingering and worsted weights. This is a great way to use them up and have lots of colors to choose from. You’ll have the choice of using fingering weight or worsted weight, so bring all those odd bits of yarn and add what you don’t want to the pile for classmates to choose from! The more colors we have to play with in this class, the better!
