Which to Use: Fair Isle or Intarsia?
I'd like to make a scarf for a friend and it's going to be my first attempt at knitting an image and I've never tried fair isle or intarsia before. This is also my first attempt at making my own pattern. It's just going to be a basic knit in the round scarf but I'd like to put the hammer and sickle symbol on each end. I'm wondering if it would be better to do this with fair isle or intarsia (if I did intarsia the patterned area would not be worked in the round since I hear that this is hard to do, I would work flat and stitch the edges together). Here's an example of the symbol.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
