This is kind of like trying to work intarsia in the round. :thinking: If you use two strands, they end up in the wrong place.
How about working back and forth for that section and then resuming knitting in the round when the gap is finished?
"Trust the pattern!"
Time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana.
Hop aboard while we follow the cloud-covered van of knitting harmony, man!! Woooo!! --Hedgehog
