Round and Round
Learning to do the “impossible” is fun! Like all magic, it is tricky, but easy once you know the secret and put it into practice. Ann Berk of Annetarsia Knits virtually teaches how to knit intarsia “in the round” (ITR) with no visible seam so you can knit motifs, pictures and messages on hats, socks, and sweaters with smooth, single-layer fabric. Explore techniques to manage yarn supplies, bury ends, and read the charts.
