Switching Colors?
Does anyone know of a good tutorial for switching colors while knitting? I learned how to last year, but have since forgotten. Even just one pic would help.

The TechKnitter site has some guides on switching colors:


.Jogless stripes--a new way (January 27, 2007)

.Jogless stripes in ribbing, with a trick to work your ends in as-you-go (March 3, 2008)

I hope these help.

You can just start knitting with the new color and weave in the ends later.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

If it's for something like intarsia knitting, there's a good video under the Advanced Techniques section of Free Videos at the top of the page. And also one for fair isle if that's the kind of color switch you're doing.
