    Intarsia designs can be quite beautiful. I haven’t yet knit any intarsia. I did take a class once, but failed miserably. Maybe it’s time to try again.

    I love color blocking and multi colors.

    I’m new to intarsia. This sweater has a cute baseball appeal to the style and coloring.

    I love intarsia because you can incorporate many colors in small areas, and have asymmetrical areas of color.

    March 20, 2013
  6. Intarsia reminds me of winter turning into spring, melting snow and bright sunny mornings with a festive sweater. I love creating new patterns and designs!

    I have never tried intarsia but it is so beautiful! I really like the possibilities in this sweater

    March 20, 2013
  8. I like the fact that, like lace, it looks like way more effort than it is!

    March 20, 2013
  9. Christine #

    I like intarsia because of the variety of color patterns possible. You aren’t carrying all the colors behind all the knitting all the time so you can have lots of colors in every row!

    March 20, 2013

    I like that it looks more difficult than it really is!

    Intarsia is absolutely gorgeous! I haven’t learned how to do it yet, but I’d like to! I’m always game to try something new when the result is that pretty. And I certainly could use a sweater for MYSELF for a change.

    March 20, 2013

    I like adding cute pictures to children’s clothes.

    March 20, 2013
  13. Intarsia is way easier than stranded knitting and makes the finished product look smashing

    March 20, 2013
  14. Susan Benesch #

    Love the designs that are possible. Have knit with intarsia designs in the past. Thank you for this generous give away.

    March 20, 2013

    Intarsia expands the knitting experience by making your handknits even more beautiful.

    March 20, 2013
  16. d4obrien #

    I like getting colorwork without stranding sometimes to avoid double thickness.

    March 20, 2013
  17. I love argyle.

    March 20, 2013
  18. Intarsia is the next logical step when a knitter gets bored with stripes. That cardigan looks perfect for someone I know very well.

    March 20, 2013

    Intarsia is perfect for adding small fun designs to a child’s sweater.

    I like the color blocking that can be of any shape. I like the lack of seams!

  23. Barbara LeBlanc #

    I haven’t really done intarsia yet, but I’d like to try it. I’ve done Fair Isle and loved it, so I imagine I will enjoy intarsia also.

    March 20, 2013
  24. I love ‘picture’ knitting, which can only be accomplished with several techniques…intarsia being the main one.

    March 20, 2013
  25. Maggie #

    I guess I have unknowingly been playing with intarsia for a while. I like the contrasts available when you play with more than one color. I try to be diligent in winding my color changes to avoid unscheduled holes in my work. The finished product can be outstanding! It is always nice when the recipient appreciates the look, if not understanding all of the work behind it.

    March 20, 2013
  26. Kathi #

    Kids clothes + Intarsia = Total Love! Such a great way to use up the “leftovers” stash.

    March 20, 2013
  27. I have always loved intarsia knitting. I can remember my first project was a pair of argyle socks for my boyfriend! And now, I love the great designs you can make with it….the many colors.

    March 20, 2013
  28. Dari Trout #

    I just love the endless design possibilities of intarsia!

    March 20, 2013
  29. Patti #

    I like the pictures you can “draw” with it.

    March 20, 2013
  30. I love intarsia knitting…my first project ever was a pair of argyle socks for my boyfirend. And since, I have made many sweaters that use bright intarsia designs..

    March 20, 2013

    The fantastic colour combinations!

    March 20, 2013
  33. Patricia #

    Love intarsia and all the possibilities. I made hats and small items but still I have to knit an entire sweater!

    March 20, 2013
  34. Laura Fugate #

    I’ve only done intarsia once, but it’s a nice way to do colorwork without the double-thickness of stranding. By the way, LOVE Berocco Vintage yarn!

    March 20, 2013
  35. The idea of colorwork without the loose strands at the back is something i need to try.

    March 20, 2013
  36. Intarsia – provides a challenge yet is so fulfilling once you have accomplished the piece. I love that you knit the tiny squares in multiple colors and create a masterpiece, a work of art. Love that there are a variety of items that be made using this technique.

    March 20, 2013
  37. Chari #

    It’s hard for me to tell what I like about Intarsia since I’ve never done it before…but I think this would be a fantastic way to start!

    March 20, 2013
  38. Thanks for holding the giveaway. I’ve had mixed luck with intarsia. I’m wondering if I need to be better about using bobbins. Intarsia is lovely looking–it feels like painting as much as knitting.

    March 20, 2013
  39. Elke #

    Love the endless color possibilities

    March 20, 2013
  40. Ann Peake #

    I love the beautiful colored designs that look so “professional”.I have knit toddler sized sweaters with animal faces but never an adult size.Thank you for the chance to win!

    March 20, 2013
  41. That is so cute! Looks like a baseball jersey!

    March 20, 2013
  42. Anne Soderlund #

    For me, it’s much easier to carry color on a bobbin than the fair isle format. I have an intarsia sweater that my mother knit for me years ago and it’s an absolute work of art. I’ve done some intarsia on vests and sweaters. It’s always beautiful.

    March 20, 2013
  43. Debra G #

    I have not tried Intarsia yet. The video is the best that I have seen and it made it seem very doable. Thanks

    March 20, 2013

    I love color and I love patterns – what more can I say????

    March 20, 2013
  45. Janice #

    Intarsia provides so much flexibility in design creation and doesn’t waste yarn.

    March 20, 2013
  46. Debbie S #

    I just love the ability to add a slash of color in the middle of any project. Thanks for the giveaway!

    March 20, 2013
  47. Roberta Sautter #

    I enjoy being able to add multiple colors in one project with intarsia. You can create such complex designs!

    March 20, 2013
  48. Suzanne #

    I love the challenge. I would love to try this sweater.

    March 20, 2013

    The ability to paint with yarn is very exciting.

    March 20, 2013
  50. Kathy #

    Love intarsia as it allows me to ‘paint’ with yarn as I paint with my acrylics, just not as messy;) Love the explosive color and patterns!

    March 20, 2013
  51. Lois McGovern #

    I haven’t tried intarsia yet, but this looks like a good place to start . The video was very helpful.

    March 20, 2013
  52. Diana K #

    Intarsia is so beautiful, and it’s a great way to use up stash to add color to projects!

    March 20, 2013
  53. Intarsia makes contemporary abstract designs possible; it seems suitable to experimentation in color and design; and I like not having to carry the yarn behind the work. It also looks much neater and very impressive!

    March 20, 2013
  54. John Butcher #

    The sweater and yarn look very soft and comfortable. It also seems like it will work up easily.

    March 20, 2013

    My favorite parka sweater was knit intarsia with 9 different colors..what fun! Love the challenge and the outcome was very rewarding!

    March 20, 2013
  59. It’s been a long time since I knit intarsia and I would love to do it again by knitting this adorable sweater.

    March 20, 2013
  60. I like that I can knit together several blocks using intarsia to create a baby blanket without having to seam them. I hate sewing and avoid it whenever possible!

    March 20, 2013
  61. Margay #

    I’m intrigued by the challenge intarsia presents. Plus, it looks so cool!

    I love intarsia knitting, though I haven’t been brave enough to attempt anything really intricate. Yet!

    March 20, 2013
  64. Victoria Street #

    The challenge of using more than one colour yarn is what keeps me on track with my knitting. These are the items I finish first

    March 20, 2013
  65. Intarsia makes knitting exciting and engaging! Love the design possibilities!

    March 20, 2013

    this looks so interesting. I want to learn!!!

    March 20, 2013
  68. Donna #

    I love intarsia because every row is different when you are knitting images, the knitting seems to go faster because there is virtually no repetition. My favourite intarsia patterns that I have made were the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sweaters for my nephews.

    March 20, 2013
  69. yesihaveablog95 #

    intarsia can be intimidating and finicky but worth every bit of knitting for the end result.

    March 20, 2013
  70. Allison #

    I love intarsia! I think it is a great way to showcase different colours of yarn in an intricate design that is unique to each knitter.

    March 20, 2013

    Intarsia is a great way to play with color and shapes!

    March 21, 2013

    I like how intarsia doesn’t leave you with the double thick fabric like fair isle does. Less bulky.

    March 21, 2013
  77. Anita #

    I loved the challenge of learning a new stitch and design. It gave me the tool to be more creative in my knitting skills.

    Adds a great look to your knitting

    March 21, 2013
  81. Anne #

    Nice to put color anywhere without adding weight or thickness.

    March 21, 2013
  82. Jill #

    I love the idea of changing color in mid-stream. Intarsia is akin to
    painting your fabric as you knit.

    March 21, 2013
  83. Pam #

    I have never tried Intarsia, but would lov
    e too, it is beautiful.

    Intarsia is a fun technique and I always enjoy streching my skills (and yes, intarsia is a real word despite what spell check tells me).

    March 21, 2013
  85. Cheryl Shores #

    I’m going to be a new grandma and would love to work in two colors instead of stripes. Your video made it look so easy I’m ready to get started with the best yarn Berroco.

    March 21, 2013

    Love colorwork. Pictures made of yarn are magic!

    March 21, 2013
  87. Makes so much sense! And it is so much cleaner.

    March 21, 2013
  88. Libby Howting #

    This really makes sense. I’ve tried intarsia before.Now I think I could do it.

    March 21, 2013
  89. i love using multiple colors it makes it so much more interesting :-) thanks for the contest!

    March 21, 2013
  90. Margaret Drake #

    With all the colours of the rainbow available, each piece is a unique expression of the knitter and intarsia lets you use a thicker yarn as there is no double thickness, love it.

    March 21, 2013
  91. Shelly Rene #

    I’ve always loved intarsia, even before I was a knitter. The designs are always so beautiful! Love this sweater.

    March 21, 2013
  92. Laura from beautiful West Michigan #

    Color, color, color! The more colors the better.

    March 21, 2013
  93. lntarsia allows you to make your design and color choices and to create a unique custom article. It is also a great way to use up those small pieces of leftover yarn from other projects.

    March 21, 2013
  94. Vicki Nunn #

    I have knitted intarsia a coulple time before a sweater and and afghan both were beautiful and a challenge which a person needs every once in a while.

    March 21, 2013

    I love adding a design to a knitted piece like stockinette. I’ve been doing intarsia even before I know it had a name! Love the sweater design features.

    I like the possibilities of intarsia. I would like to incorporate intarsia into my next project. I’ve been knitting for a number of years, but love that I still am learning and growing in skill and confidence.

    I’ve only done intarsia in projects for kids; it’s about time to do an adult project. I’ve been concentrating on cable and lace and love doing both of those but there are so many alternatives in knitting!

    March 22, 2013

    I’ve only ever done Fair Isle color knitting, so I’m intrigued to try intarsia and not have to carry all those strands!

    March 22, 2013
  109. Laurie Johnson #

    I have failed miserably at Intersia before, but Norah’s patient description encourages me to try again. I love the tricks she demonstrates–laying the yarn over the back before switching to a new color, for example. The videos are a great help–I can watch them time after time until I get it right!

    March 22, 2013
  110. I did Intarsia years ago. I guess I need to give it a try again. There are so many more resources for help on the internet now that I think I could accomplish something! Looks fun.

    March 22, 2013
  111. Anne DuMont #

    A river, an abstract, the aurora borealis – this is what the video was saying to me – and think of small color gradations, too, creativity beyond suggested colorway patterns. A new door here!

    March 22, 2013
  112. Barbara Morgan #

    I love that there are no floats in the back with intarsia. I use it to put names in Christmas stockings and there aren’t strands of yarn for the kids to catch their fingers in when getting into the stocking.

    March 22, 2013
  113. Pamela Bubeck #

    Intarsia adds the WOW factor to classic styles, and with todays emphasis on “icons” its a great way to embellish a very simple childs garment. Glad to see its trending again!

    March 22, 2013
  114. The Glade Girls #

    I too love Intarsia and took classes hoping that I could learn this beautiful technique. It didn’t go so well. My seminole project is lying in the bottom of the basket, hoping that one day I will return to give it another go…your video has inspired me to take the challenge again. Perhaps on a smaller scale project, perhaps a dishcloth.

    March 22, 2013
  115. Marsha #

    Learning Intarsia opens a whole new world of color in knitting. Without it, colors are limited to stripes pretty much and not much else. Intarsia allows the knitter and the designer to “paint” with fiber.
    Love this design, it looks so comfy and fun to wear.

    March 22, 2013
  116. Before the internet, it was difficult to figure things out. Now I have to try this again! The tutorial really helped me see how to lay the yarn when I pick up the new. Thanks.

    March 22, 2013

    I’ve only created one thing in Intarsia. A beautiful baby blanket. I found the colours just popped with this technique.

    I learned this by the seat of my pants last year in order to knit 5 monkey face hats for my grands! Thank heaven for the ‘net and a patient friend 750 miles away and long distance calls! I love to do it now to get the nice patterns.

    Before I became addicted to knitting I was addicted to counted cross stitch. Intarsia is a perfect way to combine my two favorite handicrafts. Can’t asked for anything better!

  121. Kathleen Cleary #

    Whenever I make an intarsia design, I love the comments – mostly “How did you do that?!” Makes me feel like a genius when I’m really just a knitter :)

    March 22, 2013

    I love intarsia. I think it enables you to add your own personal touch to any project. I teach it in the shop I work at and I always encourage others to try it.

    Intarsia brings flexibility to knitting projects that stitch patterns cannot accomplish. I’m on the hunt for a sweater pattern that has at least two colors of yarn to practice what I have learned by watching the video.

    March 22, 2013

  133. Suzanne Smith #

    I love the color possibilities with intarsia knitting. This video has improved my color changes dramatically. My projects will have no more holes, now that I have seen and now understand the color twists, where the working yarn is twisted and placed above the non working yarn color. It is so helpful to see the correct procedure, and then practice it while I watch the video to match my work to the video. It is also helpful to look back and replay to get a closer look when I may be confused or have uncertainties. Thank you so much!

    I love the infinite textural stitch options with knitting, intarsia adds color to the mix. I love the effects that can be made. I am always trying new stitches and projects.

    I have come to a place in my post-polio life where I spend a good amount of time in a wheelchair. To stave off depression I took up knitting and have become pretty confident! Every few months I challenge myself to a new technique and intarsia is on the list for this year. I want to make the intarsia poncho because I like to draw attention to my upper body with beautiful clothes so as to draw it away from my chair!

    Intarsia can give you the color picture of the dreams in your mind, and be one of a kind on your sweater…..I like that! or you can share and fiends can make there own combinations of color.

    It is great fun to include your favorite motifs and designs in the things you knit. I am making a skull and crossed bones dog sweater now for my doberman. I think it is very fitting ;-)

    I love to be challenged when I am knitting and i think intarsia knitting is a fun and exciting challenge. It has been great fun work on children’s pieces with Intarsia. Reading the charts does not allow me time to drift off.. I have to concentrate and that is good for me since I need to focus!

    Everything about intarsia is appealing. It can be challenging, expressive, creative, colorful and mono or multi-textural. It’s a multi-purpose design element I have used for womens, mens and childrens pieces. Intarsia is beautiful used for clothing, blankets, accessories, just about anything. I find I use a great deal to provide interest and personal ” one of a kind” items. Try it.

    I love the extra “zing” intarsia adds to patterns be they simple or sophisticated. There’s always room for intarsia!

  144. I’m a novice at intarsia but I like it because of the use of only 2 colors at one time, but also the ability to use many different colors in one piece. The repetitive use of a small design or a variety of small designs appeals to me. I love Intarsia Delight and hope to be one of the lucky winners.

    I recently used intarsia to “knit in” my granddaughter’s name on a traditional school sweater. So cute, so unique, so Kate.

    I like the design variety you get from using Intarsia & other colorwork techniques. It makes the end resulting fabric look more complex than it really is. I see a lot of possibilities in this sweater pattern–in neutrals for office wear, pastels for over a sun dress, or the denim shades shown to wear with jeans and a tank top. And I really like Berroco Vintage — my go-to yarn in all weights, DK, worsted, or chunky.

    I haven’t tried intarsia yet, but I am anxious to learn the technique.

    Intarsia adds so much interest to whatever you’re knitting. I personally like the challenge of intarsia– it keeps your projects from being too dull

  149. I like Intarsia, I did it in jumpers for my children when they were small. It’s wonderful to create pictures into a knitted piece.

    I have never tried this Intarsia method before…I watched the video and I have lots to learn, but it does seem possible for me to do this. Very interesting and very pretty….love the color changes.

  152. I’ve never tried using 2 colors for a design & she made it look easy – never saw her knitting technique tho!

  153. I have never tried the intarsia method, and I missed this session of my knit club. However, I am anxious to try it as it looks like you can make many different designs in your knitted project, and I like having different designs in my projects.

    I have been knitting since I am 5years old
    I have made a lot of sweaters for my kids and grandkids using this method with bobbins but never knew what it is called
    I enjoy doing it and will continue

    I love this sweater! Intarsia will be a new knitting challenge for me but i’m eager to get started.
    Thanks for another great video.

    I haven’t tried instarsia but I’d love to be able to play and mix colors using the method!

    Intarsia is the very reason I always wanted to learn how to knit. Being able to use all different colors in the rows instead of a flat one colored piece makes items very interesting. and I always wondered how this was possible. When I get more comfortable with my knitting I
    will definitely try this technique. I can’t wait!!!!!!!

  163. Intarsia is challenging, but it makes a cool looking garment!

    Have been dying to try intarsia and this gives me the perfect boost and incentive. Thanks for the video! Now to get some yarn.

    Intarsia is new to me. I watched the video, it reminds me so much of counted cross stitch. The sweater pictured looks absolutely beautiful. This would be something to be very proud of once completed and to be able to tell everyone, I made it myself.

    Now in my 60’s, I’ve been knitting since I was eight but never tried intarsia and would love to try something new.

    Intarsia is a great way to do color garments with large or small color areas. Like the way simply laying the last color over locks the stitches together and would love to try your latest kit, think it makes a good ballpark sweater.

    Intarsia greatly increases our design options, for example, Kaffe Fasset’s amazing knitted intarsia sweaters. I should only be that amazingly talented, one of these days!!!😊

    I like intarsia knitting for many reasons – it is not boring, the patterns appear and it is exciting, you can draw your own patterns on graph paper and have something original, you can use colors you like and even a pattern looks different with different colors, etc.,, etc. etc.

    I love intarsia knitting due to the fact that you’ve actually created a beautiful image with your hands! The fact that doesn’t this save money? You actually are buying less material you’re not overlapping your yarn so that there’s a double ply in certain areas and doesn’t create a “sag” where it’s heavier. I just think it’s so Cool! Been knitting for over 30 years and Love every chance I get to sit down and knit and have yet to be bored with this craft I absolutely love to antarsia (especially with the baby stuff!) :-)

    March 16, 2014
  171. Intarsia is fantastic because it broadens our knitting horizons’ so much – imagine all of Kaffe Fasset’s designs without intarsia!?!? So that’s my real reason – I love Kaffe Fasset so much!

    I’ve seen many Intarsia patterns I’d like to try but since I have never learned how I have felt quite intimidated. This pattern looks like a perfect beginner project. With the yarn, too? It’s a dream come true!
