Intarsia is one of the most creative techniques within hand knitting that can be likened to painting with yarn. In this class, students will learn how to read and work with an intarsia chart and gain insight into ways you can design your own intarsia motifs and patterns. We will look at the best ways to add in new yarns for a clean and professional finish, as well as tips on handling and organizing multiple yarns at a time. Students will work on a simple intarsia swatch and on completion of the class will feel comfortable to tackle a multitude of intarsia-focused projects.
Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off, chart reading
Two contrasting colors of yarn (fingering weight or thicker) and appropriate needle size.
