Intarsia 101



Once the bane of the 1980s, intarsia is back with a vengeance! This technique for knitting blocks of color is super simple, but allows for the creation of spectacular motifs—though it can get messy. Join Stephanie for the simplest introduction to this stunning technique: vertical changes with two colors. We’ll be making Night & Day hat by Kylen Tennies, a simple ribbed beanie knit in two different colors.
