Shaped intarsia is a new technique that smoothes the pixelated edges of traditional intarsia designs. Where traditional intarsia gives you steps, shaped intarsia makes a curved line, opening up a whole raft of new design possibilities.
Join Wendy Peterson, intarsia addict and founder of YarnSub
, to learn the foundations of the technique, and ideas of where you can go next with it.
During the class you will make a technique swatch and learn the necessary stitches to create the different shapes.
Yarn and needles will be provided but if you would rather work with your own needles, please bring a set of 4mms or the size you usually use for DK yarn.
You will also receive a copy of Ziggy, a shaped intarsia hat pattern, so you can continue using the technique at home!
As shaped intarsia builds on traditional intarsia techniques, you must have some experience of intarsia knitting — but you don’t need to be an expert! If you want to brush up on your skills beforehand, consider taking Wendy’s Intarsia from the Beginning class
