Cascade Bulky Totoro in the shop
Blogless Michelle got a bunch of us at Aloha Knitters obsessing on the zig zag lines that show up in intarsia. On this Totoro, his white Malabrigo front is done in intarsia, which I've been experimenting with. I did the color change steps on the purl side, which seems a little better to me. The steps are inherent in intarsia. I don't know how to knit a half stitch like in cross stitching.
Needles: size 6 DP
I have some Beaverslide in the mail. Namea at Aloha Yarn did not have any heathered Cascade 109. I think it only comes as a solid and Tweed.
Perhaps I'll soak or felt the next one. After the intarsia was done, I switched to knitting in the round. Small features were needle felted on.
