Color knitting - help -- more questions below
Geez I am just feeling spunky in my knitting lately... what style of color knitting do you use for something simple like the VW hat? Would it be IntarsIcantspellit?

Ok, so I watched the videos a few hundred times so I think I "get it". But, how do I get the CC color on the needles? Do I just start knitting with it when the time comes for it? And do I just abandon it when I am done?

Ok well... that was deceptively easy. What was I scared of again

But I still don't get the pattern :(

Ok, how do I carry the CC up? It is just kind of haning out (and when I turn my work that means IN FRONT not in back :( )

And also how do (or can ) I carry a color up a row if I don't want to use 2 colors on that row? And how many rows can you carry a color up if you can?

I don't know how far you've gotten, but you attach the CC yarn a few st from where you need it and knit according to the chart. I hope you're going back and forth. You read the front from r to l and the purl side from left to right . Just bring the new yarn up under the one you've dropped to avoid holes. I hope this explains something. If not, I'm here. And I love this stuff. :D

A little more. If you have a row where you don't use that color, you bring it up if its just a few rows. If more, you take it off and reattach. It really depends on how "neat" you want the inside to look. This hat is kind of an intarsia/fairisle because you are kind of knitting fairisle style for an intarsia pattern, meaning that its not carried all the way across the hat. I think I just made everything more confusing. Come on over. I'll show you. :D

Good to know... because I was reading it L-R the whole time (but this chart is the same on both sides so it was working ok) It's just a practice swatch anywho! Ok R-L on the P side. Got it

No. . . . on the front, r to l like regular knitting.

On the back (purl side), l to r.

Whew! Ok I think I got that straight now. Can you only do Fair Isle or the other one which I can't spell on St st? Or can I do on garter?
