Changing color?
I'm going to be making the Norwegian Sweet Baby Cap next http://grosblog.wordpress.com/2007/0...weet-baby-cap/. I plan on doing it in pink and white, changing colors every 2 rows. I've never done anything with more than 1 color before. Am I supposed to break the yarn after every color change?

With something that changes colour so frequently, you can simply carry the yarn up and not break it everytime. That would be a LOT of ends to weave in!

Yes, that's what I was thinking too (about all those ends!). Thanks for the help

Being you'll be working ITR familiarize yourself with the diff ways to avoid the jog when switching colors. Otherwise each time you switch it'll jump up a row creating a 'step' effect. There are existing posts on this topic here on KH or you can google.

Thanks for the tip! I never even thought of that, although I have seen mention of it before.
