Jacquard technique anyone?

Hi, I’m new to the forums and I’ve been knitting for a mere 3 years. Things were fine until i came across a pattern telling me to use a jacquard technique with no information on said technique. i ploughed ahead anyway, hoping to figure it out like I usually do, but this one has got me puzzled. can you help me out?

Amy has a video of it on here. Go to Advanced Techniques, scroll down. Hope that helps.

I believe this is referring to some type of machine knitting…perhaps a fair isle technique?..I’m not at all sure, I’m not familiar with it.

Jacquard is an umbrella term that covers multi-colored knitting in which the yarn is carried across the back (in other words,

not
intarsia.
Fair Isle and stranded knitting are forms of jacquard, and the video that ContiKnitter mentions is a good introduction.

For more on the subject, Montse Stanley’s book, “Knitter’s Handbook” is an excellent sourse of information. She even includes two-sided jacquard, which sounds like a oxymoron, but isn’t.

thanks for the help guys.
