Intarsia Knit

by LoriAnn

hopes-christmas-presentI was so distraught to pick up Tigger’s Christmas present (which I began while pregnant) and have not a clue as to proceed! I’d forgotten which cast-on I’d settled on, how to wind the multiple colors required, and everything else required for intarsia (a style of multi-color) knitting!

Thankfully, everything I’d learned was easily available online. I searched like mad (earning points all the while of course!) Here’s a list of my favorite resources:

  1. Cast on with the cable cast-on method in this KnittingHelp.com video
  2. Wind “butterflies” (hand-wound bobbins, no tools needed) with directions at the bottom of this KnitPicks page
  3. Join a new color as shown at the bottom of this Knit Simple article
  4. Twist to change yarn colors as in this PurlBee tutorial
  5. Enjoy your knit project!

    Ha ha! I was just looking at your page on Ravelry.com, and wondering if you were knitting anything! then I come here, and you are! : ) Your block looks like fun. Have you ever seen any pattern for knitted fruit? I saw some in a book, and thought that little kids would like them a lot. Unfortunately I didn’t buy the book, but I could probably find it again.

  3. Yup! I’m hoping for 5 knit blocks by Christmas. And I’m knitting a throw blanket for Baba :-).

    I’ve seen knitted fruit but not patterns for it… sounds scary… three dimensional!! (Blocks don’t count cuz’ they’re just squares sewn together after the fact :-P)
