Come learn the basics of intarsia with a fun and fabulous Westknits pattern! "Spectra" is a simple lightweight scarf featuring two fingering weight yarns. Short row shaping creates a dramatically curved edge that coils and playfully drapes. Basic intarsia technique entwines two strands of yarn, creating seamless wedges that resemble a  rainbow or color wheel. Led by knit designer and instructor Cassondra Rizzardi, this three-hour workshop will get you started on the pattern, and you'll leave with all of the skills you need to successfully complete your shawl at home. A copy of the pattern is included as part of this workshop.
