Intarsia and Duplicate Stitch
Join Holli Yeoh for a chat on tackling 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, reading graphs, and tension issues. She’ll show you how duplicate stitch can be used to fix mistakes, draw outlines, and add even more colour, after the project is done. Holli breaks down the techniques into simple relatable ideas and actions, taking the fear out of trying something new.
If you wish to try the technique along with Holli during the live demonstration, you will need 2-3 colours of worsted weight, plain yarn, appropriately sized knitting needles for your yarn, and a tapestry needle. Please cast on 12 sts and work 5 rows in Garter st (knit every row). Work one more row as follows (WS): K2, purl to last 2 sts, k2. Leave the sts on your needle with yarn attached.
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. Find her patterns on Ravelry and follow her work on Instagram at @holliyeoh and her website at holliyeoh.com.
