Color, Tips & Techniques
Intarsia is a knitting technique that uses separate lengths of yarn for each color in a row or round. In this class, we will create a series of swatches using intarsia, and discuss the many ways this knowledge can benefit your work (even when you’re not working in multiple colors)! You’ll leave the class with a better understanding of the technique, along with swatches demonstrating each technique.
Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off
Supplies to Bring:
2 to 5 skeins of different colors of yarn, all worsted weight; circular knitting needles appropriate for the yarn you have selected (I like to have a variety of needles with me); stitch markers; pencil; stick ruler; measuring tape; calculator; sticky notes or magnetic board to keep your place on the chart; and the usual knitting bag filled with supplies.
Materials Fee (to Be Paid Directly to the Teacher):
