Friday November 13th 5-7
Intarsia - a method of working patches of color - doesn't have to be intimidating, and it doesn't have to create a snarled mess. This workshop is based on a scarf/cowl recipe that includes simple, geometric intarsia motifs of various sizes. The recipe starts with two-color intarsia and gradually increases in complexity. By the end of the workshop, you'll feel comfortable working with at least four colors per row, and your color transitions will be top-notch!
Skills needed: Casting on and knitting
Skills learned: Intarsia
- US Size 5 needles, straight or circular, any length
- Stich markers
- Fingering-weight yarn, at least six colors, at least 20 yards of each color
Homework: Using any color, cast on 60 stitches. Work in garter stitch (knit every row) until the piece measures 1.5 inches from cast on edge.
