Intarsia is like a jigsaw puzzle for knitters. It is knitting formed from blocks of color, each knit with separate strands of yarn. Most intarsia patterns are for kids. But sometimes grownups want an intarsia project for themselves—one that doesn’t involve duckies or airplanes. Here it is, with detailed instructions for how to do intarsia.

Skills taught in this pattern:

  • Intarsia knitting
  • Weaving in ends as you go.
  • Mattress stitch.

Really Clear Skill Rating:
Level 3: You have become a little more patient when you knit. You are comfortable knitting and reading patterns and don’t need much in the way of explanation, although if there is a particularly clever way to do something, it would be fun to learn.
