Just what the heck is intarsia anyway? One of the most overlooked knitting techniques, intarsia allows knitters to add graphics think argyle diamonds or mod motifs to their knits. There's no tricky double stranding and knitters can incorporate intarsia into almost any project be it a cozy blanket or tiny mittens. This handy guide includes instructions to make 12 projects plus more than 50 intarsia graphs that can be used to customize almost any knit. Clear instructions, helpful illustrations, and finished project photos make it simple to learn the basics. There are even some blank charts so knitters can invent their own patterns. It's easy. It's fun. And the results are totally picture perfect!
