I would like to experiment with intarsia knitting and just start with 2 colors to start…
I’d like to do this pattern http://www.knittingknonsense.com/b_cloth.html
It is the letter B. I’d like to use it to make a front for a pillow form and then just knit a back piece. I figured I’d make some button holes so I can slip off the pillowcase to be able to wash it. Oh yesh, it is being made for my dogchild, Benjamin.
I would like to do the knitted border and the letter B in one color and the background in another.
I know I’ll start out using the main color (MC for the border and letter B). But how many bobbins am I going to need and when do I start using them?
Once I hit row 5, the letter B begins. Would I have 5 bobbins at that point, one for the first edge, one for the middle, one for the letter B, one for the middle, and one for the 2nd edge?
What happens when I get to the holes in the letter B? Do I need another bobbin for this?
Any advice and guidance would be very helpful!
Thanks in advance,
