The easiest way is to carry the colors all the way around with you. That's how I do it anyway.

I'd work the white area as intarsia and then dupe st the black edging when you're done. You'd have separate skeins of the gray on either side of the white until you resume all gray rounds.

I would definitely use intarsia for the white part of this pattern as well. Check out the intarsia how to video on this site, under the Intarsia Knitting section.

You could do the black as intarsia, also. Or as a duplicate stitch after you finish knitting. From the picture, it looks like the original is done with the black as a duplicate stitch. Here is an excellent tutorial on duplicate stitch (though I'm not a super fan of the finished sweater...).

I forgot to mention, when you're knitting intarsia, you want to knit flat.

There is a technique for knitting intarsia in the round. http://yarnyarns.blogspot.com/2008/1...-in-round.html

It's possible to knit intarsia in the round but it's a bit difficult. I like carrying the colors around to maintain an even thickness throughout the hat (just my personal preference).

As you can see there is always more than one way to do something in knitting :rofl:

You could Knit Back for the Intarsia

Ah, Kris, that technique is a simple (if purling is simple) solutions or you could Knit Back (left handed knitting) without turning the work. Then slip the second row of intarsia color and resume knitting with the main color.

Thank You so much! ive been wanting to make this for my chiropracter for so long and now i can!:woohoo:

Even easier, if you don't want to deal with the intarsia ITR tech, you could make the entire cap in whatever bg color, and then dupe st the vert design in its entirety. It would appear somewhat embossed being it would sit slightly higher than the bg sts.

so when i do the in the round intarsia, do i need to make two gray bobbins or will i just cary the gray across the back of the white?
