Yes, I admit it. I'm afraid to start that HiP scarf
I want so much because it's not done in the round. >.< So far I have knitted three scarves, a beanie, fingerless gloves, and super-long armwarmers, but nothing that involved going back and forth! I've only ever done swatches this way and the edges always looked too rough.
I'd also really like to do a super-quick bulky yarn, garter stitch, rugby-style school scarf (after three Harry Potter scarves, I'm nearly sick of knitting scarves - but I love wearing them!) This would mean changing colours just like the HiP scarf, but how do you weave in ends when you can't hide the tail anywhere (double-sided is a must)? I've had issues with it poking through to the other side when it was too short. And is there a jog when changing colours this way?
Thanks for your patience!
