  1. Hi Glena – no, you really can’t easily knit Intarsia in the round. I’ve seen people say online that there are ways to do it, but I’ve never really investigated how they say it can be done. 🙂 The problem is that your working yarn is never in the right place when you need it to change color. Most intarsia patterns (argyle included) have you knit the piece flat and seam it together if necessary.

  2. Hi Staci,
    Thanks again for another great video. I have always stayed away from Intarsia, but you explain it so well I just might try it!!

  3. I just love your website and refer to it often. I have also really enjoyed the patterns that I purchased and the videos made it all so easy. So thanks for all your hard work, dedication and professionalism.

    I was wondering if you knitted the black sweater that you are wearing in the Intarsia video. If so, would you be so kind as to let me know what pattern it is? I would love to make myself one. It looks great on you.

    Thanks again.

HELP ME PLEASE…by the way i love the way you knit..im a continental knitter and just learned your way…it is very helpful when doing fair isle ..now i can hold 2 colors at a time knitting one continenal and the other your way..it makes the floats a lot more even and no puckering of your knitting…..thanks

  5. Hi Staci,
    Can you do a combination of intarsia and fairisle in 1 project. For example I am knitting a moose cardigan with two moose(s) going across the back. Thought it would be easier to do the legs in fairisle and then the body of the moose in intarsia. Does this make any sense and is it do-able?? Thanks for your help. Virginia

  6. Virginia – yes, it is possible to do both fair isle and intarsia in a project. But keep this in mind – for the legs of the moose to be workable in fair isle, the design has to continue around the entire sweater. Both colors of yarn are carried from the beginning of the row/round, to the end. With isolated designs like you’re describing, I actually prefer to knit it plain, then use duplicate stitch to add the design: http://verypink.com/2011/02/15/duplicate-stitch/

    Hope that helps!

  9. Hi Staci. Just had to let you know that your intarsia tutorial just kept me from giving up on my project so thank you. Hopefully you can answer my question. I’m working on the double ten stitch blanket by Frankie on ravelry. I was wondering if the braided technique you show in your ten stitch tutorial is possible on the double ten. It makes the project seem just a little more intricate
    Thanks for your time

  10. Hi Chantal – thank you for the note. I’m afraid I can’t help you here, as I’m not familiar with the double ten stitch blanket pattern. All I can suggest is to give it a try!
    Good luck!
