Once you add this technique to your knitting toolbox, you may never want to go back to any other method of carrying floats. The ladderback jacquard technique will improve the tension of your stranded knitting while allowing you to span much larger areas between stitches. This knitting method adds stretch to the floats while preventing the alternate color from peeking through, and can be applied to nearly any form of stranded knitting.   

In this class we'll explore several different options for setting up and resolving ladders, explore best practices for placement and charting, and talk about edge cases like single-row ladders and working with three or more colors. Whether you're interested in tweaking patterns or developing your own colorwork designs, incorporating this technique means you can design without limits on the space between alternating motifs.

In this workshop, you will: 

  • Work a sample swatch in ladderback jacquard
  • Explore different methods for creating and resolving ladders
  • Learn to move ladders within our knitting
  • Understand different use cases and how to plan for ladders in your colorwork
  • Learn how ladders can be worked into charts
