I've taken pics to show an easy way to join as you go. There is a pic of a sweater I made with this method. As you see I had my IPad upside down. Sorry. If you need more info, please ask. You will see that with the green on the left, that you will see that the join looks like the wrong side. Look at it from the other side, ie; green on right, yellow on left this works out as right side. Just a little fiddling as to which way to pull up loop will fix that. Ann

Do you have this written out? I think I can figure it out from the pictures but in writing would help a lot.

I don't really understand what is happening here...maybe more instructions?

Yes, please! More instructions or photos! Thanks.

Love the sweater, but not sure I understand the process. Perhaps it could be a way to use up leftover yarn.

This idea is not mine. I found It in a magazine. I have hundreds of knitting mags. So it may take a while. I thought Showing pics would be easier than words. I have a great deal of difficulty expressing knitting techniques in words. I have to go out this morning, but will knit and try to type what I mean in between. Or try to sort. my mags and find the man who invented this procedure. Til then. Ann

How about making a utube video? I don't get it either. But it would be something I would interested in.

Would love to try it - will be watching for your next post.Thank you for sharing.

I sort of get it, but a youtube or more written directions would help me. I'll keep watching for more instructions - I think I would love knowing how to do this!

Machine knitters have a method called "Sew as you go" ... you knit the last stitch by pulling that one stitch worth of the new yarn through the side of the other panel as well as through the last stitch.

There's an old issue of Threads magazine that uses your new method to knit intarsia in the round -- pull a loop of new yarn through the side of the old knitting, then knit over and back with it.
