Intarsia Motifs: Design and Development with Anne Berk
This is the class where you do the designing! You will create a motif, make a template and a chart, determine how much yardage is used, and figure out how to make your design easy and enjoyable to knit. From graph paper to software programs, you will learn how to design so you are confident with your idea before you swatch the motif, which will save time and energy. Copyright issues, estimating needed yardage, practical tips and tricks of design, and use of charts will be covered.
Graph paper (knitter's graph paper is preferable), any motifs that you are interested in developing into knitting charts, measuring tape, knitting needles and yarn used for swatch or the same weight yarn as in garment
Stockinette swatch or garment with a field of solid stockinette at least 6" square will be used to plan the motifs.
