how to connect 2 colours??
Hi. I'm learning how to knit and trying to make a scarf and getting very confused.
I have started with 1 colour and finished with it when trying to move onto the next do I need to cast off and sew them together? or can I continue with second colour?
If I need to knit 2 separate panels and sew them together how do i do this?
please help me

Just drop the first color, pick up the other one and start knitting with it, leaving a tail long enough to weave in later.

If you were making squares you might want to do each one separately, but that's a lot of extra work to sew them together later. So you can just do them as a strip.
