Intro to Intarsia - Pam Sluter

0.00

Intarsia seems like an overwhelming technique at first. At its most basic it is simply using separate lengths of yarn to create areas of color. In this class, we will conquer any fear you might have! Students will create a series of swatches starting with simple colorblocking and progressing to working a simple motif from a chart. Weaving in ends, managing yarn and intarsia in the round will also be covered.

Please bring or purchase from our awesome UNWIND vendors! 

  • Worsted weight yarn (~100 yards in a neutral color and various lengths of worsted in multiple colors. Look in your stash for all those leftover bits!),
  • Needles that will give you a fabric of 4-4 & 1/2 sts per inch when working with worsted weight yarn.
  • Straight and set of dpns or 2 circulars to try intarsia in the round.
  • yarn needle.
  • scissors
  • stitch markers.

Prerequisite: Students should be able to cast on, knit, purl and bind off.
