I haven't done intarsia either, but I get the concept and you can't do it in the round. You don't seam it either.

Carmen, look at the video for intarsia; you 'join' the colors as you go. When you drop one and pick up the other, you loosely wrap them around each other so they connect the edges.

I'm terribly confused. I read the pattern and the top is Kitchener stitched and that unites the stripes portion, but it seems to me that there will be an opening where the ends of the flat rows are. Maybe it's one of those things I'd just have to see how it works for it to make sense.

Yeah, intarsia is o e of those things you need to knit flat as far as I know. The may be some co trotted way to do it, but I'm not sure.

ETA- I looked it up and there is a method for intarsia in the round, but I could barely understand the one I saw. intarsia flat makes more sense to me.

Look at the intarsia video I linked to see how the edges of the colors are joined to the ones next to it. Maybe the pattern calls for seaming them together, but you can interlock the yarn when you change colors instead. You could probably decrease at the top and do the drawstring type close instead of kitchener, though some patterns do graft the sts together.

Sue, it's not the intarsia color changes that need to be seamed. As you say, they interlock and join to each other as you change colors. It is the edges from knitting flat that'll need to be seamed. There's a break or opening where the end of one row is turned and another row is started, knit ro purl or vice versa.
Eunny Jang has a Knitting Daily episode where she shows you how to do intarsia in the round. It's not hard to do but not for the faint of heart.

Ohh yes, I didn't think of where she's turning to work flat. That part would have to be seamed.

Thank you. I was trying to figure out how to say what I meant and in the meantime decided I was way off base and totally missing something. All I could picture was a hat with a slit up the side. That would be odd.

Sue, the video on intarsia is great, I'll have to remember it's there when I try it for myself. You were focused on the intarsia and I was focused on the row ends, that's all.

Yeah, I think I'm coming down with something, so haven't been thinking that well today. I forgot about the row ends.

Have a hot cup of tea and get some sleep. Or, take 2 aspirin and call us in the morning. Seriously, I hope you feel better soon.

This pattern would have been less confusing IMHO if it started out as a flat knit. I can't see why it was started in the round.
