Have you ever wondered why intarsia is always done in stockinette? Break that rule, so that the benefits of garter stitch (reversible fabric that does not curl, and row gauge that equals stitch gauge) can be translated to your intarsia designs. Even beginners can make stunning colorwork designs easily, at the end of this class
Technique Requirements: Cast on/bind off; knit.
Swatch #1: Small pillow
With worsted-weight yarn, CO 30 sts with size 7 or 8 US needle. Measure 2 yards and cut off. (Bring 10 more 2-yard lengths in the colors you will be using to class, as directed in the Supplies).
Swatch #2: Dizzy scarf
With worsted-weight yarn, CO 30 sts with size 7 or 8 US needle. Measure 5 yds and cut off. (Bring 10 more 5-yard lengths in the colors you will be using to class, as directed in the Supplies.)
Smooth, worsted-weight yarn in at least 3 contrasting colors and appropriate-sized needles (suggest US size 7-8). We will be knitting flat, so long dpns or straight needles are recommended, if available. Measure and cut 10 pieces of yarn in the colors you will be using (at least 2 colors, but more are better. Great use for leftover worsted stash!). Cut 2-yard lengths for Swatch #1 and 5 yd lengths for Swatch #2. Coil them up and bring to class.
