Botanical Intarsia: Jardin Pullover

Learn intarsia with the Jardin Pullover! Intarsia is one of the most creative techniques within hand knitting that can be likened to painting with yarn. In this class, students will learn all the skills needed to walk away feeling confident with this artistic colourwork method. After trying out the technique with a small swatch in two colours, participants will look at different intarsia charts as examples and learn how to read them. Yarn organization and finishing will be explored, including the best ways to add in new yarns for a clean and professional look, as well as tips on handling and organizing multiple yarns at a time.
We will work on a botanical intarsia chart that uses different weights of yarns to create an organic patterning effect. After completion of the class, students will walk away with all the skills needed to confidently knit the Jardin Pullover.
