Stripes and Carrying Yarn Up The Side — With Wool
Spend your time knitting, not weaving in ends. Here's the final tutorial celebrating the Mosaic Sisters pattern! Today's tutorial is about how to carry yarns up the side of your work when you're knitting stripes. Doesn't matter if the stripes are narrow, wide, or take up less than a row.
When adding a new color, never knot! Instead, join new yarns neatly and invisibly at the beginning of a row. Knots have a way of coming untied and working themselves to the front of your work when you least expect it. We recommend this method: Place the needle into the stitch, dropping the old yarn and picking up the new yarn, leaving a 4-inch tail to be woven in.
