Finishing, Tips & Techniques
Class Details:
Intarsia often conjures up images of voluminous ‘80s sweaters covered in puppies, chicks, and Laura Ashley florals. But the technique itself is super easy, super fun, and lends itself incredibly well to modern, linear, and graphic shapes. In this class, we’ll learn how to work intarsia flat, then how to shift stitches and even how to work intarsia in the round. Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease
Knit a swatch of 30 sts cast onto appropriate needles with a third color (than the 2 contrasting you'll also bring) in the same weight as the other 2 yarns.
Supplies for Class:
Bring two colors of yarn in a similar weight and needles appropriate for the yarn.
