Wouldn't this make a garter stitch pattern? If that's what you're going for that's fine, go for it.

The idea is to knit in the round, making stockinette, but doing it back and forth--knit on the outside, purl on the inside, so you can do any kind of intarsia pattern in the round. The part that needs to be played with is how to keep the ends attached.

OHHH I see. This is the other thought that I had in mind. That may work. Maybe crossing the stitches over the other at the end would keep the edges together. I think this was mentioned before.

That was my thought, too. I just don't know how it would look. I'm so into my sweater sleeve right now, I don't want to stop to experiment.

I've been reading all your comments. Take a look at this site's 'advanced techniques' and read the first paragraph under 'a couple of notes about knitting in the round.' She writes there is a method to do intarsia while knitting in the round. I was hoping she would jump in here and give us some notes.
Keep up the comments. Thanks Catherine

I have done intarsia in the round, but it's only do-able in the main color is carried across the intarsia section, as far as I know.

Basically you knit around once--that works ok, but your yarn is in the wrong place for the next round. On the next round, you knit across with your mc and slip the cc stitches. Then you turn your work and purl across the cc stitches as you slip the mc stitches that you already knit. Then you slip the whole section back onto the right needle. On the next round, you stitches are on the correct end of the motif, so you can knit across.

What this discussion turned into was basically knitting intarsia back and forth, but somehow attaching the ends to avoid seaming.

Hi y'all, just saw this!

Actually, there are 4 different methods, that I know of, to do intarsia in the round! I have Silver to thank for learning these. She turned me onto a great article in Interweave Knits (Fall 2003), which you can buy a back-issue of from their website (here) if you want, that outlines all 4 methods, with pictures.

One, as Ingrid says, requires carrying the main color through the pattern. Another, as sogrammatical has figured out (WTG! ), works back and forth, as if the piece were flat really, but allows for the turning point to be joined to itself as you go, creating a circular piece. It does create a visible seam at this juncture, but this is probably the most popular method, as it's fairly straightforward and easy to remember.

This method typically uses an increase and a decrease at the seam point, to prevent a hole when you turn the work:
Quote:
At the beginning of the knit side row, begin with a yo (increase), and work (doing standard intarsia) until the end of the row. On the last stitch, do an SSK decrease with that stitch and the yo.
At the beginning of the purl row, do a yo increase, and at the end, do a p2tog decrease with the last stitch and the yo.
The other two methods are also very useful. My favorite one is totally seamless, and allows for solid color blocks. If I ever shoot a DVD of advanced techniques, that will be on it! In the mean time, I recommend buying the back issue of that magazine; it's a great issue, and also has one of my favorite hat and mitten patterns. Issue available here.
