If you want to change colors every row, or every 3 rows, you'll need to cut them leaving a long enough tail to weave in. Though there is a way to knit with colors on every row, any you need a circular needle; knit a row with color 1, without turning, slide the sts back to the other end of the needle and knit a row with color 2. Then turn and knit or purl color 1 again, slide the sts back and do the same with color 2.

Okay, I mispoke. It is only changing like every 4th row for 12 rows, but then repeat 12 times. So do I need to cut and leave tail for each all the time???

That makes the most sense. It just seems like a lot of tails :-))
