Hmmm... I have an issue of Interweave Knits with an article all about intarsia in the round. On the cover, up in the top left corner it says "Learn to Knit Intarsia in the Round"! And the back issue is still in stock.

I saw that...so, I gave my LYS a call and unfortunately they didn't have any left of that specific issue...I just hate paying for shipping. Maybe I'll give ebay a check. Thanks Silver.

I'm hardly an expert, but I have done it and would be happy to help. The only place I've read about it is in a copy of Woolgathering which is a seasonal publication by www.schoolhousepress.com . It's in the latest issue and explains how to do it on the featured sweater. I adapted it to a sweater that I've been working on and it worked out great. The alternative in this case was to duplicate stitch. Yuck.

This is the way I've done it. I've done it on a sweater, on a circ, not on dpns. The slip/purl method worked out well and was easy to see. You do need a bit of experience, though, so you know what you're looking at.
