When you’re working an intarsia knitting pattern, there’s going to be a point where you need to estimate how much yarn you’ll need to work a specific section of your pattern.

Once you’ve got that sorted, the next step is to decide how you’ll wrangle your tails once they’re part of your knitting. It might sound like a lot, but I’ve got two straightforward video tutorials for you today that should help bring everything into focus.
