I’m including a photo of a previous intarsia piece of knitting to show my problem. These are just straight panels of intarsia and I would expect shouldn’t be a problem… photos of intarsia work done by others look so even! I’ve done intarsia knitting a number of times, and to some degree always experience this uneven tension problem. I’ve viewed the video on this site but it doesn’t solve my problem - doesn’t mention tension problems - and I seem to be going about intarsia the right way as far as “twisting” the two yarns when changing colours. But obviously I go haywire with the tension of my stitches in the immediate area of the colour change.
Looking at the inside of the knitting in the photo, above the collar, every second row seems worse… do you think it could be a problem with either the knit or purl row in particular?
When not knitting intarsia I automatically have quite even tension. Its never a problem. But when it comes to intarsia I just cannot get those stitches the same size :wall:; I’ve tried pulling a little tighter on the yarn for the first stitch, I’ve tried relaxing and trying to keep on knitting evenly without stressing about it, I’ve tried analysing whether its happening on the knit or purl rows or both… and I’m going crazy with frustration! HELP PLEASE!! :help:
