Carrying yarn up the side of the work
Hello all:

I am going to make a triangular scarf out of some LO yarn (interlacements tiny toes) and the colorways, although they are the same dyelot, really don't match. I'm going to alternate between the two skeins I have but I don't know how to carry strand one up the side of the work while I'm knitting a row or two with strand two. How do you do that???

Thanks for any help!

Ann

You would knit 2 rows with each strand, so you change at the same edge. Loosely wrap the two strands around each other. I think there's a video for working with 2 yarns/colors on the Tips page.

That's great, I'll give it a try. I just weighed my leftovers and I only have 100 yards or so, not enough for the patterns I wanted to use. I'm just going to knit a thin scarf, unless you know of a pattern for a small triangle scarf???

Thanks a bunch!!

There's a couple small triangle scarves on Ravelry. One is Baktus at - http://www.flickr.com/photos/norwayneedles/2963651011 and there's a lacy version - http://www.flickr.com/photos/83952633@N00/3646583926/

The book Scarf Style has one called the Collar scarf that starts at the lower edge and incs by casting on sts.

Thanks so much! I'll look at those after I put the critters to bed. I tried "triangle scarf" as a search and didn't come up with a small one and then looked for "neckerchief" and came up with nothing.

I knew they must be out there!!!

Try 'kerchief'. There's been a discussion on them in this thread at the Knittyboard. I think you have to be logged in to even look at them though.

The arrowhead shawl from Knitting Daily might be small enough.
