We're going online with our workshops! You can take this class from the comfort of your home, using a free videoconferencing software called Zoom. Please read the Helpful Tips section carefully before registering for this class.

What it's All About

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. We'll use the argyle design from the new Rutherford Vest pattern as your practice piece. 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 1.5 hour sessions via Zoom. There is a small amount of pre-work 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.

Pre-Work Required

A PDF with a small amount of pre-work will be sent to you upon registration in this class. Please make sure that you have done the pre-work completed before the first session.

Please Bring

  • a small amount of a few colours of worsted weight plain wool in light to medium colours. We recommend using RCY Epic, a 100% wool yarn available in solid colours.
  • appropriately sized knitting needles for the yarn you bring
  • tapestry needle

Skill Level

You should be able to knit, purl, cast on and bind off—advanced beginner.

About Holli

Why Learn from Holli?

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 objects, 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. Her courses are well polished, solidly prepared and cater to students at every level.
