Carrying Yarn Up the Side

There is no need to cut yarn between color changes when knitting colorwork or stripes.  Carrying yarn up the side of your work allows you to bring the different colors discreetly up the edge.  Consistency is the key to a professional edge and this video will guide you to expert color changing.

Intarsia

Intarsia allows for separate areas of color within a knitted piece. Each color area has its own skein or bobbin of yarn allowing for long distances between color changes. Add lovely motifs to your knitting such as argyles, polka dots, pictures – the only limitation is your imagination! Watch this video to learn the basics of intarsia and bring your knitting to a whole new level.

Jogless Stripes

Changing colors in circular knitting creates a step, or “jog” in the work. Since rounds of knitting do not nestle on top of each other like stacks of plates, special care must be taken to minimize the interruption made when a new color is introduced. This trick is quick and easy to learn in this short video lesson. Stripe on!!!
