In brightly colored wool, the intarsia diamonds of Daring Diamonds will add a splash of color to a sometimes colorless Winter season. The Daring Diamonds scarf provides an easy, no preparation, no bobbin way to give intarsia a try, and finish with a fun scarf.

The pattern includes information on how to do intarsia knitting, helpful tips for managing ends, a chart for the pattern, and a graphic which gives a visual image of the entire scarf. There is also an optional download of a blank chart to allow the knitter to customize their color choices.

The intarsia directions included in the pattern are all most knitters need to be able to knit their first intarsia project, so this is a great way to learn a new skill.
