Online Resources for Intarsia in the Round?
I'm eventually going to be re-knitting my Tricot sweater, and I would like to do it in the round. However, this pattern has white stripes that run up each side and down each sleeve.

I've noticed several people talking about Intarsia in the round, and I was wondering if one of you could direct me to a good online tutorial for accomplishing this.

Thank you, my dear, sweet knitting friends!

Bless your heart, Rebecca! Thank you! I've printed it off for later. I can tell it's one of those things I'm going to have to actually do before it makes sense. Although, after knitting Intarsia flat, I have a feeling I know what they're aiming for.

Thanks again!

Since I've basically blown off this entire day, I decided to Google for some more stuff.

Here are some more links:

From Knitting Software, Inc.

From Dawn Brocco Knitwear Designs

These *seem* to be slightly different methods. I would love to hear feedback on what others have done, and whether or not it's even worth my time to attempt this. My original thoughts were that it would be quicker, but now I'm not so sure.

The only way that intarsia in the round really works "in the round" is if both colors carry across the intarsia design. Then you can carry your mc across on the first pass, and go back and purl the cc stitches. The directions on the pattern for the baby hat basically have you knittting the hat back and forth, joining as you go, avoiding the seam.

I don't know if it's really possible for a solid stripe or block of color, but if you can find a way to do it, please share!

OK, well, I'm having trouble visualizing this.

Let me use my sweater as an example. Here is what I see. You would start w/ a block of white, a block of orange, another block of white, and then another block of orange.

When I start the block of white, I'm going to end up w/ the white working yarn moving from the left to the right ... aha...

.... I just visualized why this won't work. Every time you knit a row of a color, you end up w/ the working yarn on the right "end" of the work, and the next time you come around, you don't have a working yarn to knit with. Now I get it.

So, I guess this probably precludes this particular project from being knit in the round, but I'm not giving up yet. I think I'm going to have to pull out some needles & fiddle with this. I have an idea.
