Intarsia is a bold, powerful technique with a severe image problem. Some say it’s ugly. Others say it’s complicated. We disagree. When practiced properly and used with skill, intarsia is capable of creating fresh and beautiful multi-color fabrics unlike anything else in knitting. And it’s fun.

In this eye- and mind-opening introductory session, we’ll learn and practice the fundamentals; and then begin to explore the possibilities that lie in playing with color, texture, fiber; and in designing your own charts.

Prerequisites: Students must be fully fluent in the basics of knitting (casting on, knit and purl, shaping, etc.) and able to work from charts.

Supply List
• Two balls of smooth worsted-weight yarn (for example: WEBS Valley Yarns Northampton, Universal Yarns Deluxe Worsted, HiKoo Simpliworsted); one in a solid or semi-solid dark color and one in a solid or semi-solid light color. The colors chosen should be very distinct from one another.
• One circular needle (16”–24” is sufficient) or one pair straight needles in a size appropriate to the yarns chosen, according to your preference.
• Scissors
• Yarn/tapestry needle
• Pen (or pencil) and paper for making notes. (In all of my classes, note-taking is highly advised!)
• Row counter and/or chart row marker
