What can be done using only one yarn feeder for the ground colour and 24 yarn feeders for the intarsia?
A sample of knitted stitches and yarns, all in the same swatch
The sample is very thin and uses precious yarns for a very delicate effect.
Looking at the panel on the front or on the back side, different effects are visible. An intarsia knitted on the front, is clearer. The one made on the back side of the panel reveals the transparency of the colours on the front. The result is therefore a play of shades, obtained thanks to very fine yarns of various types.
Overlapping stitches, colours and materials, create a “knitted veil” that reveals transparencies and shades of colours. The state-of-the-art technology offers many possibilities.
Intarsia, Jacquard and petinet are the techniques of this proto.
The Stoll ADF530-32 Ki W E.10.2 has 32 motorized yarn feeders to be used for normal work, intarsia, plating and inlay within the same pattern.
