So I am now hooked on creating intarsia motifs and am trying to master this skill! In my second attempt I have tried to knit a Mario star (as in from the games). I’m a huge fan of Mario/ Nintendo games so I’m sure I’ll probably knit more along the lines of this theme soon. The outcome has made me feel very proud! 🌟🍄🎮🏁👸
I am now also trying to mix the techniques of intarsia with fair isle knitting to create more complex motifs and cut back on the amount of different stands of yarn you have to use! I have already used this technique around the eyes of the star using fair isle style knitting to continue on with the same yellow across the eyes instead of having to get another ball of wool.
Below is my pattern I made for this star, feel free to use it as well! It’s basically a replica of the 8 bit star form the original Mario games with some tweaks.
Yet again I have used a website called stitch fiddle for this which I would recommend if u want to experiment with making ur own patterns as it is extremely easy to use!
