If you want to crochet a picture or other swathes of color – Intarsia might be the right fit for you!
Work the final pull-through in the new color. See how I have a green loop on my hook? That’s in preparation for the next stitch.
What Do You Get with Intarsia?
- The finished piece is only one thickness. There’s no stranded yarns.
- Given the above, it’s also reversible.
- The FO has more of a supple-feeling because of these.
- Each section of color needs to be done with separate yarn.
- Before you wonder why all colorwork isn’t done in Intarsia, it does create A LOT of ends.
- Each section needs to be done using either yarn butterflies, bobbins or just sections of yarn that you allow to hang behind.
- When changing colors, be sure to follow the above.
This is just a sampling of what’s in our Colorwork PDF!
About the Instructor: Jody Richards
Jody is the founder and lead editor of Knotions. She loves poring over stitch dictionaries and trying out new stitches. And while she likes all things crafting (well ok, except that one thing), yarn crafts are her true love (and she has the stash to prove it).
She’s a serial starter-of-projects and has a serious problem with finishing things without a deadline.
And don’t get her talking about hand-dyed yarns. You’ve been warned.
