Vertical striped hat - carry or intarsia?
Hi - I am making this hat: http://www.p2designs.com/images/patt...ySwirlHat.html with dk weight yarn and size 5 needles. (Smallest yarn/needles I've worked with yet!) Can I get away with carrying my yarn when changing stripe colors or do I need to do intarsia? I tried carrying, and have a bad feeling i'll need intarsia - but the pattern doesn't mention anything... That'll be a lot of little balls of yarn to manage, no? Any clue how long to make each little ball, if I do need intarsia?

Thanks!!

Since it is being knit in the round and the stripes are only 3 sts
wide I would do stranding, Just remember to keep your floats loose
across the back and you should be fine!
