Slater Mill – Knitting Weekend Andean Intarsia

Mary Jane Mucklestone taught her “Andean Intarsia” class on Saturday.

The color-work was intense! Students used an Andean checkerboard pattern to develop Andean knitting and purling skills, with the yarn tensioned around the neck. They learned the secrets of the “corded join” and learned to purl backwards, manipulating bobbins of many colors, while beginning an intarsia hat or headband.
