Intarsia Ins and Outs with Beth Whiteside
Intarsia is awesome, and it's easier than you might think, when you know just a few of its ins and outs. 'Picture knitting' can be used to add geometric shapes to a plain sweater, or put Santa’s face on a stocking. Learn how to plan for your elements, wind butterflies, and minimize tangles. Our class project will lead us through joining yarns, interlocking colors to prevent holes, and what to do when yarn needs to move diagonally. We’ll finish up with some tips on using duplicate stitch and weaving in ends. Get in with intarsia!
