The Linked Arms technique, used in a coffee sleeve this week, is for the boundary between two colors, where there would normally be a seam. It requires a little juggling, but it's a way of working intarsia, in the round. So, this pattern actually uses the regular twist-when-changing technique of preventing holes in intarsia along with the Linked Arms, to avoid a seam. Increases and decreases, not special intarsia techniques, create the triangle motifs in the sleeve. Get it all, along with a chat with designer Kathy Zimmerman, on Sunday, December 25, 2011.
