My First Colourwork Follow Along - This is Knit

The Patterns

Snug or slouchy - we've got you covered! The two starter cowl patterns in this programme use aran or worsted weight yarn, so you'll be seeing progress quickly and getting cosy in a flash.

There's bonus content too, with optional fancy cast ons and cast offs. We never miss a chance to teach you something new!

Our Tutorials and Tips

We've created an extensive collection of resources, including video tutorials, cheat sheets, and more, to make each step of this journey as effortless and stress-free as possible.

The beauty of the program is that there's no strict timeline to follow. You can complete each stage of the journey at your own pace, moving on to the next when you're ready. And if you ever need to revisit a technique or review a concept, our videos are readily accessible so you can go back to them whenever you need to.

Colorwork FAL

I enjoyed the lessons in this FAL. I have worked colorwork before but never understood the concept of dominant color. Lisa explained this very well & I love the idea that I can refresh my memory whenever I need to by going back to the lesson. will be visiting Dublin in September of this year so I will be sure to wear my Pink Lemonade Cowl for that visit.
Thanks again,

Colourwork Follow Along

This is an excellent tutorial stuffed with helpful hints and tips. Lisa is an excellent teacher whose perfect soothing tone makes it all crystal clear. The colour dominance was a revelation and I've now added holding the other colour in left hand continental style to my skill set! The extra techniques will be so useful to have saved - rather than having to hunt down random YouTube videos to remind me of cast on's etc.
PS. When I bravely launched into a fair isle tank top as my first (and only) colour work I made every mistake in the book - if only I'd had the benefit of this support I wouldn't be mortified every time my husband insists on wearing it!


Really enjoying this. The explanations and videos are excellent. Feel I need to watch demonstrations a few times before starting to knit. Looking forward to the process.

I am an English knitter, so I am practicing Continental knitting. What a great idea to practice the style that you are not familiar with. It's getting easier, that's for sure. At first it felt like I had 2 left hands - LOL

Colourful Challenge

This is my third follow along with This is Knit. I have just finished knitting the Follow Along Jumper and I am just starting the one for making socks. I can say that I am really excited to follow my path on this Follow Along working with two colours as I’m not good with knitting that has more than one colour.
In the first Follow Along Lisa and her team supported you every step of the way via video lessons and being available for any of those times you felt that you needed extra clarity. Plus you can go along at your own speed. A bonus for me as I am a very slow knitter.
After seeing the first video lesson, I feel that Lisa will breakdown the mystery of working with more than colour and working with colour charts.
If you have always wanted to try knitting with a few colours with an interwoven pattern, but been a bit scared to try. I would purchase this Follow Along. You get a link to the video lessons that are with you for ever and access to Lisa and her team. Plus you can also purchase a ready made up kit of yarns required in some lovely colours. Go for it, what have you got to lose. 😀

Follow Along FAQs

This FAL is for all knitters that want to give stranded colourwork a go for the first time, or who have struggled with this technique in the past.

The cowl patterns are knit in the round, so you will need to be comfortable with knitting on circular needles before beginning this Follow Along.

You should be comfortable with casting on, knit, purl and casting off.

You will also need a basic knowledge of knitting in the round.

Your ticket purchase covers lifetime access to all all patterns, downloadables and bonus materials. You will also receive a €30 coupon code towards your Follow Along materials. A total bargain!

You will receive a unique coupon code for use in our online shop after you purchase your follow along ticket.

The starter pattern samples were made in Malabrigo Rios and Camarose Snefnug. Most wool or wool blend yarns in aran / worsted weight will work well for these projects.

Ready-made yarn bundles for this FAL can be found here.

This will depend!

The starter patterns recommend 4.5mm (US 7) needles for the edges and 5mm (US 8) needles for the main fabric.

Everyone's tension is different though, so please feel free to adjust for your own knitting style. We cover this in one of the first lessons of the follow along too. All will be explained, we promise!
