Interested in Intarsia? FIBER FRIDAY with Holli Yeoh via ZOOM!



Tackle the intricacies of intarsia to add blocks and motifs of colour to your knitting. You’ll learn all the basics including joining colours, avoiding holes, managing all those ends and tangles, and reading graphs. We’ll also cover tension issues and show you how duplicate stitch can be used to fix mistakes or add even more colour, after the garment is done. There is nothing to fear; by the end of this workshop, you’ll have the confidence to work with colour.

The online workshop is presented over two 2-hr sessions via Zoom. There is a small amount of homework to do before the first class and between classes you’ll be asked to complete your 5 x 4” (12.5 x 10 cm) workshop swatch. Skills needed: knit, purl, cast on and bind off—advanced beginner.  

This is a ONE TIME LIVE ZOOM EVENT that begins at 6 eastern, 5 central, 4 mountain, 3 pacific.  Your zoom link will be sent the evening before class.  Check your spam filter if you do not see it.

Homework:

Use worsted weight yarn in light to medium colour. Choose a needle one size smaller than what you might usually use for your yarn (perhaps 3.75 to 4 mm / US 5-6, depending on your personal tension). Don’t stress over getting the right needle size for this swatch; we’ll be discussing gauge in class. Cast on 25 sts. Knit 4 rows in garter st. Next row (RS): Knit. Next row (WS): K3, purl to last 3 sts, k3. Repeat last 2 rows once more. Do not cut yarn.

Instructor Bio: Holli's passion for knitting has spanned a lifetime, from learning to knit as a child to her fine arts degree majoring in textiles and jewellery, and an almost 20-year designing career. A Holli Yeoh pattern is sure to offer something to learn, as well as a casually elegant aesthetic. Interesting techniques, clear instructions, and inclusive sizing ensure a rewarding knit with beautiful results, as featured in leading publications and her book Tempest. Holli feels strongly about fine craftsmanship, believing that while there's more than one right way to do things, it's important to do it right! To this end, she teaches skills that enable knitters to feel justified pride in their finished projects, while accommodating different knitting styles and preferences. Students leave her workshops with an arsenal of valuable techniques, deep understanding of the choices to be made in knitting, and new confidence.
