Garter Stitch Intarsia on Ask Me Monday
Today on my weekly, Facebook Live video series, “Ask Me Monday” we delved deep into the colorwork technique of Garter Stitch Intarsia, using ever-so-handy tools by Clover. Watch the rebroadcast of the episode in which you can expect tips and tutorials on:
- Stranding yarn using one or both hands.
- Avoiding a gap when changing colors.
- Carry yarn across back.
- Knitting in ends (to carry.)
- Trick for getting a loose strand to prevent bunching.
- Using knitting bobbins.
- Duplicate stitch on both Stockinette and Garter backgrounds.
Even if Garter Stitch isn’t your game, all of the skills taught in this video are applicable to regular, ol’ Intarsia, too. Give it a watch, then check out the tools and chart you’ll need to get started!
