HALP. I have a question about colour joining.
Hi there!

I'm knitting a scarf with lots of colour stripes. I've been knitting for quite some time and always had this question: When changing between colours, is it possible to hide the joined edge? I'm knitting it completely in garter stitch.

Any input would be helpful and appreciated.

Thanks :D

I have used a lot of color changes myself in sock patterns. In a scarf, I would not knot the two colors but leave a long enough tail of the new color to weave it into the pattern with a tapestry needle.

color change
In a scarf, I would not put a knot in the new color with the old color and leave a long enough tail of the new color to weave the end into the work with a tapestry needle.
