How do you change color when you do a ribbing in the round? It is not working well to weave in the ends on the go for each stitch as one is changing between knit and purl all the time. I tried to come up with some ideas and only weaving on knit stitches sort of works. In my case I want exactly one row with another color and then some bigger gap.
Can you carry the yarn up?
Do you have a pattern.
Complete the round and change colours by working the change row in knit stitch only. Once you have that done you can go back to the ribbing with no problem. One row of plain knit will not be noticeable. 👵🏻
Google jogless join in the round. The videos will show you how to change colors and how to carry yarn. Are you doing a 1x1 rib or 2x2 rib? How many rows before/between color change?
I am doing 1x1 ribbing. White cast-on, 1 row black, 10 rows white, then 1 black, then 2 white, then 1 black and finally 10 rows white. I do not want to mix in stockinette into this ribbing. It is these mittens I want to make:
Good luck — beautiful pattern.
Knit one round with the new color, then resume ribbing.
Yes, you can knit the row with the new color, it won't affect the ribbing.
When you change colours, do the first row in knit stitch only. Then continue in ribbing. That way you get a straight row in the new colour.
I agree, knit the new color row so you don’t get the purl bumps showing on the right side. You won’t notice it. Otherwise you can try the jiggles technique and weave the yarn as the video describes. I would recommend putting the jobless join somewhere invisible cause I can still see it a bit.

Those mittens are lovely. Knitting them should be quite an adventure.
Great site. Loved this cast-on.
