striped garter stitch problem
I'm working on a pattern that calls for working in garter stitch. Every 4 rows I am to switch colors. Unfortunately, when I knit the first row in the new color, it creates an unwanted stripe of the contrasting color in the last row of the main color. How do I stop this from happening?

Always change colors on the right or front side of your work. The back or wrong side will show the color change. Here's a part of a baby sweater I made. You can see that it looks nice at the color change on the front side, but on the back or wrong side side you can see the problem.

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