Practice knitting in the round with 2 colours, and deciding when to change colours. The finished swatch can become a brooch or coaster so you go home with a wearable/usable keepsake. The instructor will have samples to give inspiration. Homework in order to save time: Use jumperweight yarn (any colour) and 3.0 mm needle, cast on (18 stitches, place marker) 6 times. 108 stitches in total. Bring up to 8 different colours, but 2 contrasting colours will also do.
