Vertical stripes without stranding—how can that be? Intarsia, or picture knitting, gives us the means for painting with color across a fabric that remains a single thickness. This class will get you started painting your own simple intarsia picture, teaching you how to prevent holes at color changes and giving you tips to keep yarn from tangling. Come see if painting with yarn is right for you.
