    This was very helpful, thank you so much!

    Thanks for such a clear tutorial. I was always confused about the twist.
    It’s so much easier to remember that the last yarn you worked with goes
    over the new yarn. I’m ready to go forth and use intarsia now!

  • Sharon Rosenberg says:

    Shame on you Berroco! This is WRONG! You never knot yarn. Perhaps you
    should watch some other you tube videos on intarsia knitting. Hint: you
    wrap your yarn.

    you very much…

    i dont get how this works relevant to the rest of the work, say if there
    were 20 stiches til you come back to the intarsia, or joining new colors..
    does the yarn have to be seperate from the ball? how do you anticipate how
    much to cut off?

  • TeeJay G says:

    this is good;fairly easy to follow. I try to keep my yarn bobbins organized
    neatly so as to not make a tangled mess & I feel I can work much smoother
    if organized

    Really appreciated – very well explained!!! Intersia was a real mystery to
    me. I was doing a couple of test strips of colourwork and got my yarns
    hopelessly entangled. So thanks! this really helps. A propos, I’m still a
    little mesmerized that I’m watching Norah Gaughan, whose wonderful designs
    inspired me to start knitting in the first place.

    awesome. Thank you for sharing. I am new to knitting, but I want to explore

    down and never forget what row I am on. Many thanks

    Awesome video Nora. Very clear and easy to follow. I’ve been knitting since
    I was 8 and am now 56, but always love to watch how others do things, so
    really enjoyed your video. Most of my projects use a few dozens colors,
    with my biggest project taking 125. I didn’t even know I was knitting in
    Intarsia as I had never heard of it when I first started. I just wanted to
    use LOTS of colors, so created a way to do it, and turns out, it was
    Intarsia. Anyway, can’t wait to c more of yr vids 😉

    Bobbins – love ’em or hate ’em. Haha. Like anything else in knitting, it
    just takes practice. Thanks. 🙂

    have ruined and started over more times than I want to admit because of
    color work. I think I can do it now!!! Thank you again!!!

  • fuzzylogic55 says:

    Thank you very much! I am a fairly new knitter and am taking on a colorwork
    headband. I had no idea how to do this as it was not in the pattern. You
    made it easy!
