INTARSIA KNITWEAR: ANNA HUSEMANN'S DOMESTIKA COURSE

Updated: Sep 5, 2023

In the past, I used to avoid the intarsia technique due to the unpleasant memories of a super ugly sweater with a dog dressed like a clown that my mum loved to put on me when we were visiting family. Bold colors, an oversized motif, and an itchy collar. The perfect combination. However, in recent years, intarsia has become one of the most prominent techniques used by knitter designers such as Laura Dalgaard, Lærke Bagger, and Anna Husemann. I started to admire not only their designs but also their influence in the knitting industry. This made me realize that I should give intarsia a second chance.

I found Anna Husemann’s Domestika course inspired by her design in the book "Neon and Neutrals,” carefully curated by Aimée Gille, and decided to enroll. This course is perfect for anyone who loves knitting and wants to learn to incorporate intricate designs into their work.

The technique step by step

Anna Husemann is a German textile artist specializing in intarsia knitting, and her work is heavily influenced by nature. She often uses handmade collages of images from nature to create her designs, and in this course, she teaches students how to create their own intarsia designs using similar methods.

What sets Anna's course apart is her attention to detail. She takes the time to explain each step of the process, from selecting the right materials to creating a detailed pattern, and her passion for the craft is evident in her teaching style. Students will come away with a deep understanding of the intarsia knitting technique and the ability to create their own designs.

Anna also emphasizes creativity in her course, encouraging students to experiment with different colors and textures to create unique designs. She teaches students how to transfer their collages into a pattern, an essential skill for anyone who wants to design their own intarsia pieces.


The final project is a strap top decorated with your own design. Anna offers a basic pattern in multiple sizes, and she recommends using high-contrast colors in DK-weight yarn.
