Can you change colors without a wrong side?
I am knitting s striped scarf with a fisherman's rib stitch. When I change colors, you can see the "wrong side" color change. Is there any way to keep this from happening?

Thank you,

Sarah

Yes there is.... some people just knit the joining color row, then continue in the ribbing pattern for the next row. Yes I know this sounds like it is wrong, but try it in a swatch... it hardly shows at all and gives a nice transition in color work.

Yes, Tygah has a good method of joining without the seam showing on the "wrong" side. He has a video on YouTube, so if you google Tygah
you should be able to find it.

Well. That was an interesting video. I'll have to try it sometime.

I want to try it too, Jan, but I have a feeling it will produce an "imperfect graft" because of the casting on, sort of like a provisional cast on that comes up a stitch short and so things don't align precisely. That said, it could still be something I would want to use because it would be less obvious than just changing colors. I think my crochet hooks that attach to my cables would make getting the yarn through the stitches quick and easy if I were doing a lot of them and circs would eliminate transferring stitches from needle to needle as he does.

I agree. I prefer to just live with the results since it's a normal part of knitting. Knitting in the round is also an option.
