Friday 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
1041 Easy Intarsia Garter Stitch 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.

Saturday 8:30 am - 11:30 am
1040 Easy Inside Annetarsia : A New Approach to Intarsia Knitting Expand your horizons to conquer non-stranded color knitting. No previous experience with intarsia is required! Learn ways to manage multiple yarns, to read colorwork charts, and to deal efficiently with the ends. You'll develop confidence as you link the yarns between sections and create a flat, single layer of stockinette where YOU control the color. You won't believe how easily you will knit motifs and produce professional results.

5227 Easy Yarn gauge: Control Your Yarn Supply You know how important stitch gauge is to manage the fit and size of a garment. But knowing your Yarn Gauge (how many inches you need per stitch) allows you to measure out the correct amount of yarn for your needs. In class you will learn how to do the easy swatch needed for measurement and calculation. You will measure out and knit an intarsia project with the correct amount of yarn for every color used.

1042 Easy Annetarsia: Intarsia in the Round 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.

5108 Easy Intarsia with a Twist For the intrepid knitter who is told that something is difficult or impossible but wants to do it anyway, intarsia is easily knit flat, but there is a way to create seamless intarsia in the round. It is tricky, but once you know how, it is very manageable. This is knitting magic at the highest level! Class project is a tube that can be finished into a bag, a Christmas stocking, or a hat.
