Seamless colour change
Hi All: I am knitting another afghan but this time I am using 3 diff colours. I am using the diagonal pattern ie cast on 5 stitches. k row 1, then knit 3 yarn over knit, then knit 3 yarn over knit 2 and so on till you get to the length you want then you start the decrease. My problem is that I am knitting 30 rows then I change to the next colour at the beginning of the next row so I cut the first colour and start the new colour but on one side it is flush meaning the one colour is perfect to the previous colour but on the wrong side there is a row on the new colour then a row of the old then the new blends in flush...why??

How can I eliminate this or can't you??
Thanks a bunch
Diane

You can only get a really smooth transition between colors between knit rows. The purl side always shows both colors.

I have asked this very same question just in a different way..
I wish there was a way to do it without leaving seams on the other side.
