Intarsia is such a fun technique and often overlooked in color work. I think knitters tend to be overwhelmed with it and feel intimidated. But with much of knitting, it’s much easier than it looks! Watch the video and give it a try!
Although a lot of the Intarsia work we see is in stockinette stitch, I have a special fondness for garter stitch and geometric patterns.
Because Intarsia lends itself so well to the creative side of knitting, I decided to teach the basic technique in this workshop and encourage students to take the leap and design their own. Here’s a finished project from the first week: Mary Jane in her finished project.
We’re halfway through week 2 as I write this. Lots of creativity flowing with stripes, flowers, and even some cypress trees!
