Intarsia is a technique that creates individual shapes in different colors. Unlike stranded or slip stitch patterns, separate colors are not carried across the entire row and the resulting fabric is a single layer of stockinette with the separate colors linked at the edges. Possibly the most classic example of the technique is the Argyle pattern.
The first session will cover the structure of intarsia, how to prepare yarn butterflies or bobbins, chart reading and working the technique - just the diamonds, we'll add the lines later!
The second session will cover weaving in ends to close gaps and duplicate stitching the lines.
