Introduction to Intarsia Knitting

In this 2 hour class you will learn the fundamentals of Intarsia, which is a technique used to create blocks of colour in your knitting. Using a square swatch with a heart motif, you will discover how to switch colours mid row to create large areas of colour and defined shapes! Topics covered will include attaching new yarn, switching colours multiple times throughout the row, reading a chart, and creating a yarn butterfly, which is a method for making up small hand wound bobbins of yarn that you’ll knit from. The pattern provided in class will enable you to knit a cute patch with a heart motif, which you can later use to repair a piece of clothing, or as a pocket.
