If understanding intarsia is top of your Christmas wish list, this pattern will certainly guide you in the right direction. There is also the opportunity to embroider French knots and to try your hand at moss stitch.

Top knit tips

Intarsia is the process of creating different motifs in different yarn colours. Unlike Fair Isle, you don’t bring the unused strands of yarn across the back of your work. Instead, you allow the yarn not in use to hang down or wind it into a small, neat ball. Twist the strands together to avoid holes.

If you are a dab hand at embroidery, you could always forego the simple French knots for a more elaborate pattern. From a pretty Christmas angel to decorative baubles, there are so many festive additions for you to make.
