Have you ever looked at a colour work project and thought "I'd love to be able to do that but don't know where to start"? Thankfully, Mieka John is here to help.
Intarsia brings freedom to colour work, letting you splash bold panels of colour and shape wherever you please. With as many mini-skeins as you have ideas, and a little planning, you'll be filling your knitting world with colour!
In this class Mieka will go in-depth, laying out a systematic approach to creating, bobbins, reading charts, and planning out your intarsia project while learning other handy tips and tricks along the way.
While this class is mainly about intarsia, you'll also learn duplicate stitch and a small amount of stranded knitting so that you'll be able to dive into your intarsia project armed with a variety of techniques and the knowledge of when to apply them.

- Wednesday 29th September 2021 from 7pm - 9pm (local time Dublin Ireland)
- Participants should be familiar with how to knit/purl, cast on/bind off and chart reading.
