Shaped Intarsia 

with Daniela Nii


If you've ever been annoyed with jagged color changes in traditional intarsia knitting, there is a solution. In Shaped Intarsia, knitwear designer and instructor Daniela Nii shares techniques that allow you to create smooth lines and curves, which are otherwise rarely seen in knitting. It's possible to highlight color transitions as decorative design elements or create a more subtle effect by diffusing the stitch in your work. The possibilities are endless for incorporating both organic and geometric shapes into your knitting. It's really as simple as working a k2tog and lifting one strand of yarn over the other.

In Shaped Intarsia, you will learn how to: 

  • Compare and contrast stranded knitting with intarsia
  • Make a butterfly to contain your yarn
  • Change colors vertically, to the right, and to the left
  • Use decreases and increases to eliminate jagged color transitions and hide them in your knitted fabric
  • Use special increases and decreases for a decorative effect
  • Finish your pieces with tips and tricks for closing holes and weaving in the ends
  • And more!


The Shaped Intarsia Tunic and Grace's Bag patterns featured in this video are available in the Knitting Daily Shop.

This video is easy to follow (even for a non English speaker).
The tips are interesting but I would have appreciated to have the patterns shown in the video.
It would have been a good exercise.

clear, discriptive, detailed view
This is an excellent tutorial. Daniela performs all variations showing the advantages and disadvantages of each. The view as she is knitting is extremely clear. A very thorough demonstration. I have never even tried intarsia but this is so clear and simple I can go ahead and start right away using Daniela's methods. Review by marcella (Posted on 9/20/2015)

I haven't completely gone though this video yet but what I have watched are really clear and easy to understand. This will be a video I keep coming back too time and time again and will mean I can knit better Intarsia. Review by Joan (Posted on 7/9/2015)
