How to knit with multiple colours at once

I did a series of how-to knit videos with The Australian Women’s Weekly Books and here is my video tutorial for Fair Isle/Intarsia/strand knitting.

Strand knitting, Intarsia or Fair Isle knitting, is a technique that allows you to switch between two or more colours in the same row to create patterns in your knitted work. It may seem complex but with a bit of practice you’ll be knitting words and pictures in no time!

Once you really master this technique you can try out my Free David Bowie knitting pattern grid!

Happy knitting!
