striping on dpns
happy new year! i'm making some striped mittens!
after casting on and dividing evenly between 3 dpns i k1p1 for one round. the 2nd rnd calls for a color change. when i'm finishing up the 1st round and i'm on the 3rd needle should i be connecting the last stitch on that 3rd needle to the first knit stitch on the first needle of the 2nd round? i'm confused because it's a new color and i'm not sure if i need to join the 1st and 2nd round.
thank you for any suggestions!
