I've always wanted to try my hand at this but have been intimidated. So, I've finally tried it and just love it! I have alot to learn I see though. My color carrying is a little long in between the colors, so need to be more mindful of that next time. But, if ya don't look at the back it looks great! LOL It is called "I'll Pack A" Cowl for Rhinebeck, by Deb Jacullo and can be found on Ravelry.com Happy Holidays to all.

That turned out very nice! Don't give up. Just make a bit more of those project and sooner than you think you'll be a pro!
Well done!

That is great. I'm also setting out on my colour work adventure and I think you have been much more adventurous than I have

About how many stitches should you make before "catching" the yarn so its not so "long in between" color changes?

Good job! What yarn did you use? Looks soft and silky in the photo.

Philosopher's Wool (website) has an excellent video on catching floats. There are other videos on you tube that teach this method, which really makes it easy to knit stranded designs. It was a big help to me.
