Annetarsia: Intarsia in the Round with Anne Berk
Yes, you can knit intarsia in the round—with no seam! This can be the answer for working a motif on knit socks or hats. Learn techniques to manage yarns, bury ends, and read charts when working non-stranded color work in the round. We will practice with a simple motif. You will be amazed at how quickly and easily you will produce professional results.
Note: Some experience with traditional intarsia and working from color charts will be helpful but is not required.
Smooth, #4 (worsted) weight yarn in at least 3 contrasting colors, and appropriate sized needles, yarn needles, and scissors.
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.
Using any method, cast on 64 stitches with MC onto a 16" circular needle. Being careful not to twist stitches, join to work in the round. Work 1x1 ribbing for 1 inch.
