Intarsia in the Round

Intarsia is a technique for working colour blocks without carrying along the other yarn avoiding floats on the wrong side like in stranded knitting. In this class, you will practise different ways of working intarsia in the round. This way, you can make, e.g., seamless sweaters and hats with contrast colour blocks.

  • Length

    3 Hours
  • Level

    Students should be comfortable knitting in the round.
  • Materials needed

    You will need yarn in different colours and needles suitable for your chosen yarn.
  • Since we’ll be working in the round, you will need either a long circular needle for magic loop or double pointed needles in case you prefer them.
  • Homework

    If you want to try out the techniques in a sock, you can work the toe or cuff in advance – which ever way you prefer to knit socks.
  • For socks, you will need fingering weight yarn (400 m / 100 g) and 2.25 mm needles (depending on your gauge).
  • If working cuff-down, cast on 64 sts in main color and work 16 rounds of (k2, p2) ribbing and then, knit one round.
  • If working toe-up, you can start with these instructions: Continue the increases until you have a total 64 sts.
