What do you find to be the easiest way to change colours in your work? Thanks
Great question....I hope some of the really talented knitters we have on this forum will give you some great answers. I'm going to watch this topic because I'd also like to know :thumbup:Irish Lori said:What do you find to be the easiest way to change colours in your work? Thanks
kaffe (i call him kaffe) also says to knit both ends in for the first 3 or 4 sts and avoid weaving in.....since he uses tons of colors in one item and the overall color impression is the point of his designs, i can see where that would work for him but maybe not for us mortals who only use 2 or 3 colors and the joins would be more noticeable...however, it is good to know it's perfectly safe to do so and naturally, i am willing to try anything kaffe says....am planning a scarf now with one of his great intarsia patterns (crying virgins, sleeping virgins???) just on the two ends...my first real intarsia...but hey, if you're gonna do it, start at the top!!!!!grosvenor said:At a talk in Sydney several years ago, Kaffe Fassett said NOT to use those bobbins. Just estimate how much of each yarn you need,and let the yarns just dangle. If they bunch up, it is easy to just pull each each one out until they are all nice and straight.
Stripes - for narrow stripes, carry the one not being used up a side seam. If there are more than 2 colours, start one (or two) at the OTHE end of the row.
You will need DPN or circular to do this. Less bunching up of waiting yarn at the seam
