Color, Tips & Techniques
If you’ve been longing to add a splash of color to your projects with intarsia but haven’t taken the plunge yet, skip all the YouTube videos and join in with a group of adventurous knitters learning together! We’ll go in depth on how intarsia works, tips and tricks, and cast on a little NYC/VKL souvenir project in class! This project walks you to intarsia, duplicate stitch, and a wee bit of stranded knitting to really show how these methods of adding color to your projects work together!
From the moment you enter the classroom, Mieka works to make sure your time together is safe, valuable, and fun! You’ll leave feeling not only accomplished and armed with new skills but but that you’ve connected with your community.
Technique Requirements: knit/purl; cast on/bind off; chart reading; basic finishing techniques
