Intarsia brings freedom to colorwork, letting you splash bold panels of color and shape wherever you please. With as many mini-skeins as you have ideas, and a little planning, you’ll be filling your knitting world with color. In this class, you’ll learn how plan out your intarsia project along with other tips and tricks for your own project. While this class is mainly about intarsia, you’ll also learn duplicate stitch and a small amount of stranded knitting so that you’ll be able to dive into colorwork armed with a variety of techniques and the knowledge of when to apply them.
This class is on Thursday, July 22nd, 2021 at 8:00AM EST.
