Intarsia Garter Stitch with Anne Berk
Intarsia allows knitters to paint pictures on their knitting and control color, while making a single layer fabric. Have you ever wondered why intarsia is always done in stockinette? Intarsia garter stitch is tricky but a lot of fun to knit! Learn to break that rule, so the benefits of garter stitch (reversible fabric that does not curl, and row gauge that equals stitch gauge) can be incorporated into your intarsia designs.
Smooth, #4 (worsted) weight yarn in at least 3 contrasting colors, and appropriate sized needles. Note: we will be knitting flat, so long dpn’s or straight needles are recommended, if available. Class project will be suitable to knit a scarf if you wish to keep knitting (small amounts of stash that total about 400 yds will be ideal )
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
