Annetarsia: 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? Learn to break that rule, so that the benefits of garter stitch (reversible fabric that does not curl, and row gauge that equals stitch gauge) can be translated to your intarsia designs.
Level of Experience: Intermediate. Prerequisites: Knit. Some experience with working from charts will be helpful, but not required.
Materials to bring to class: Smooth, worsted weight yarn in at least 3 contrasting colors, and appropriate sized needles (size 7-9 US). We will be knitting flat, so long dpn’s (double-pointed needles) or straight needles are recommended, if available. Class project will be suitable to knit a scarf if you wish to keep knitting (small amounts of stash that total about 400 yds will be ideal).
Materials fee: None.
Cost: $30 for members ($55 for non-members which includes Guild membership through 2019)
