This pattern is stst.
But do I carry keep carrying the yarn for the colours with every single stitch? I just feel like it’s going to be really bulky.

How would I knit this? Intarsia Knitting
by: Ratchadawan

Hi Lucy,

You're right. It would be quite bulky if you carry the yarn all the way through. This is a type of knitting call "intarsia". Each section of the patterns has its own little ball of yarn. The main yarn and the pattern yarn are crossover whenever it next to each other.

Here is a good example of a video that show you how to do an intarsia knitting.

I hope you find this helpful. Happy knitting!
