Course Lessons ( 3 )

  • 1. How to: work stripes (carrying yarn up side)

    05:36

    Whether plain or patterned, stripes are a great way to add colour. With narrow bands, it's best to carry yarn up the side to use again, and this minimises yarn tails, too.

  • 2. How to: prepare for intarsia

    06:44

    This is a colourwork method often used for creating pictures or block motifs and uses different yarn colours from small bobbins in the same row. Let’s understand how intarsia works before we give it a try.

  • 3. How to: Work Intarsia

    10:38

    This is a colourwork method often used for motifs and colour blocks, and uses different yarn colours from separate balls in the same row. You might like to watch our how to set up for intarsia video first if you’ve not tried this technique before.
