Choosing colors that will go together well in knitting or for any purpose can be confusing or even scary if you don’t have that in-born color sense.  This class will give the students a set of formulas that are easy to follow to build a color palette.  All they have to do is choose ONE color they like and build on it. Students will walk into a life-size color wheel filled with Brown Sheep yarn in 80 beautiful colors to make their swatches.  

Most Appropriate skill level:  Beginner to advanced  

What skills or knowledge do students need to take this class?
