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!!!
Unless you will be knitting only one-color and one-skein projects, you will eventually need to add a new skein of yarn. I like to add the new yarn at the beginning of a new row and tying it into a little bow to secure. Watch this video to see how easy it is to move onto two-color and multi-skein projects!
