Technique Corner June 13, 2016

In today’s video Lucy demonstrates Navajo (or chain) plying; a fantastic technique that allows you to work a triple strand of yarn from a single ball without any advance preparation (i.e., you don’t need to divide the yarn into three equal balls, or wind the yarns together). This method is also ideal for triple-stranding variegated yarns, since it allows you to keep the colours in sequence or blend them together.

For more videos like this, see Lucy’s Multi-Strand Knitting playlist.
