I feel so stupid right now....lol. I have looked at the Advanced techniques video and other videos you have all posted in yoru replys but I still don't get it. *how dumb am I* All I'm trying to do is make a scarf one side red and one side black. I tried last night to knitt both together but I just ended up knitting both strings of yarn at the same time and it looked like a different colour pice of yarn and that's not what I want. Plesa help me. I'm burnt and desperate.
If you knit it in the round, all you would need to do is knit the first half of the stitches in black and the other half in red. You could cross over one stitch of each color at the place where the colors meet in order to lock them together.
So, lets say you want a scarf that ends up 25 stitches wide....knit 23 sts in black, one in red, one in black, 23 in red, one in black, one in red, 23 in black, etc.
Then, bind off & seam the ends of the tube together when its as long as you want it.
Maybe I'm not thinking of something (please explain more if that is the case!), but if she does a tube and does the black first say, drops it and begins the red, then drops to begin the black again, the black yarn is going to be on the other side of the tube. I thought that might be confusing. Since it will be a tube anyway, I guess you could carry the yarn back even though it would be pretty long. Am I thinking of that right, or am I out of my mind (more than usual, that is)
