Knitting a k2p2 ribbed scarf in two colors. Need help with color changes!
I've consulted books and videos, but I cannot figure out how to hide the seam of where the two colors are stitched together. It would bother be so much if this weren't a scarf and had to look good on both sides. Please help!
I wish. I found this pick and this is what I want but do not have. http://www.mattandjenhoyt.com/oilyge...ibbedScarf.JPG It looks like I have one block of white then one row of navy for two stitchs, white for two stitchs and so on then a block of navy then another row of alternating colors. Hard to explain. I wish I could upload a photo. Feeling so frustrated. I'm sorry.
That's what I thought you meant, though it's not generally referred to as seamless. You mean you don't want the color changes to show. On a 2x2 rib scarf, the other color shows on the purl stitches, but not the knit stitches. It might not be so noticeable after a few more inches and the ribbing pulls in a little. Unless there's some kind of slip stitch, I'm not sure how to avoid it, sorry. A 1x1 rib is a tighter rib and it wouldn't be as obvious.

Now I can breathe a bit. All of my family keeps saying "maybe its not a 'knitting community' problem, it could just be you" Yay! I'm not crazy! Always a good day when the question of my sanity is debunked.
I learned a trick from The Sweater Workshop about color changes when ribbing. What you do is on the first row of a color change just knit..no purling, and when you come around to the beginning start ribbing again. I was skeptical, but it works!! I'll post a picture tomorrow.
When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
