Knitting ends in
I am a new knitter and new to this forum.

Am presently doing a babies sock with stripes but would like to reduce as much bulk as possible when joining in a new colour yarn.

I don't wish to carry the yarn up my knitting because I've seen a method where the old yarn gets knitted in along the first 5 or so stitches....after joining new colour yarn.

I don't remember how this was done. I've tried but it's altered the sharp line of the stripe on the right side....I get odd/extra purl V's above the worked row.

Does anyone know how to do this technique? Thank you.

Grace
