Fair Isle help!
Inspired by Ingrid, I've decided to make a baby sack instead of a blanket for someone at work (his baby girl is due in Sept.). And i decided to make a Fair Isle chart to myself and try it out... So here's the question: in the video Amy pulls yarn n.2 behind a few stitches done with yarn n.1 thus leaving strands of yarn at the back. If i hide yarn n. 2 by crossing it with yarn n. 1 before each stitch, so in the back it looks inside the loops - am i doing something wrong? Are there any drawbacks to that?
Thank you...
