Stranded knitting - carrying yarn?
I'm working on Binary from Knitty right now. It's a flatened tube scarf. I'm doing it on a circ though b/c I hate DPNs.

Anyways you knit the chart and then do 2 rows of Main Color. What do I do w/ the CC at that time?? It says to carry it, but I don't get it??

TIA!!

This is the way I learned to do fair isle. It takes a little practice, but once you learn it it's awesome!

Since it's inside the tube, you can just let it hang and loosely bring it up when you need it again.

Thanks Jan - I am doing the 2 handed method right now. I actually picked up on it really quickly. I will watch the video when I get home to see if I'm missing anything.

I just wasn't sure what to do when there's a large portion of MC only.

That makes sense Ingrid - I'll try that tonight.

Thanks again! I love it here. Everyone's so helpful!
