Double-knitting Intarsia

Have you been wanting to add more color to your double-knitting, but feel like you don’t have enough hands when doing multi-color double-knitting? With double-knit intarsia, you can work with a theoretically unlimited number of colors without changing the thickness or flexibility of the double-knit fabric – and you only need to deal with two strands at a time. In addition, all those unattractive intarsia twists are completely hidden inside the work.

In this workshop, you'll learn to take your existing double-knitting and intarsia knowledge and combine them to add an exciting twist to your creative repertoire.
