Intarsia is a new technique we haven’t tried for the Knitterati Afghan. If you haven’t ever tried Intarsia, we have added a great video on the basics of this technique. There are a few great tricks given in the video to help you with the basics of this technique. Though it’s a bit long for some, it’s worth watching.

BLOCK THE BASE OF THIS BLOCK BEFORE EMBELLISHING IT.

When you get to the embellishments for this block, you might find you need some tools you haven’t used in the past. Besides the bobbins, you will also need a crochet hook for the ears and the hair and a button for an eye. Below is a great video on how to make a crochet chain.
