Introduction to Intarsia Knitting

Knitting with blocks of colour

About this experience

Master the basics of the Intarsia knitting technique.  Often referred to as ‘picture knitting’ intarsia allows you to use multiple colours across a single row to achieve stunning designs with a single thickness fabric.  Intarsia was popularised by designer Kaffe Fassett in the 1980s and is now back as a knitting trend.  We will try different methods to knit intarsia including using bobbins, butterflies and short lengths of yarn to see which suits you best.
