Kemp! You win the golden needles today for sure. Of course the yarn would be in the wrong place! She would have to knit it flat, half red, half black and then seam up the sides. Duh! I feel dumb.

yeah after i thought about it when Kemp said it even if you did carry it, you would have a big ol' mess in your tube. you could probably do it as intarsia i would think so you don't have to seam up BOTH sides couldn't you?

if that works, i promise it isn't nearly as scary as it would seem. especially with something that that is rectangle shaped....just remembering to cross the yarns the right way the first few times is the hardest part!

Wow coming from you that is a real compliment! I need to go in the other room now, but my head won't fit through the door!

And, to get back to the original subject, I think that DIY video is exactly what you would want to do, if you must to it all together. They do call it an advanced technique, but I am sure you'd be fine after some practice.

You earned it, sweetie!

When you switch colors, you just have to remember to bring the new color up under the old color on the back of your work to trap it. What I do is insert the needle in the first 'new' color st and hold the old color in my left hand pulled over to the left. When I knit with the new color, it automatically goes in the right place. If it's a little loose at times, a slight tug will take care of it.

KK you're not a dork!!!!!!!!! muah!

I was thinking the same thing! My suggestion was going to be knit in black for as long as you want, then change to red for the same legnth, BO, then seam the sides and one short edge.

oo, Ingrid, you posted as I was writing this... you're not a dork either!!!!!!

Hi Youngknitter,

How are you doing on your scarf? I feel so badly for you. Is there somebody near you that knits? Sometimes it is frustrating trying to learn something from a video. DS's GF finds it much easier when I show her.

I had a thought on this last night--this could be knit lenghthwise. Knit red for a certain number of rows, switch to black for the same amount, bind off and seam. Or do a provisional cast on for the first edge and do a 3needle bindoff along the long edge. No seams.
