Class Details:

Knit intarsia in the round (ITR), with no visible seam. Learn techniques to manage yarn supplies, bury ends, and read charts when working “in the round” with non-stranded colorwork. This is the technique used for argyle socks, and to put pictures on knitting, with a trick to eliminate a seam: handy for socks, mitts, hats, bags, sweaters, etc.

Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off, chart reading, easy colorwork

Homework:

Basic edging: Using any method, cast on 66 sts onto a 16”circ needles. Being careful not to twist sts, join to work in the round. Work 6 rounds garter stitch Round 1: knit Round 2: purl Repeat Rounds 1 and 2, twice more (6 total rounds)

Supplies for Class:

Smooth, worsted weight yarn in at several contrasting colors. You will need small amounts, as you will be knitting blocks of less than 60 stitches, (11 blocks of 6 sts each) so leftover stash is ideal for this project. Appropriate sized needles (7-9 US, circular needles 16” length). Yarn needles, scissors
