In this article, I will tell you how the intarsia sweater became the ultimate winter wear.

 “Intarsia knitting requires a certain level of craftsmanship and definitely patience,”

Charlotte de Geyter notes to Vogue

“When I see intarsia knit, I always know the amount of work and time that’s been put in, so the piece feels particularly precious and luxurious. There’s definitely been some love given to each Intarsia sweater.”

If you’re not acquainted, intarsia is defined by The Fairchild Dictionary of Fashion as decorative colored motifs knitted into a solid color fabric, producing an inlay effect and with patterns on both sides of the fabric being identical.

Intarsia is wonderful if you want to make a knit with a pattern that has multiple colors,”

Geyter further explains.

With this technique, you’ll have only one active color per stitch. Your sweater will be knitted in one layer, and the colors do not overlap.

” The end result will render more intense colors and a sharper design, she adds.
