Here is my little Intarsia flower. An advertising visual for my class. A couple of things to note:
- Most charts have squares yet a knit stitch is really wider than it is tall. Can you see the difference?
- This swatch is still a hot mess. It will look better once I weave in the tails which will take away those holes you see.
A little drench in water and look at how fabulous it is! Getting knitting wet is a way of making the stitches sing Kumbaya, getting together to make your project look crisp and beautiful!
The only thing more fabulous than this spring flower is...
the back! I have found a needle that is perfect for weaving in tails. It is called a chenille needle. It's big enough to use with yarn with a very sharp point that allows you to split the ply and bury your tails for a perfect finish!
