I am knitting a striped poncho on circular needles using 2 different colors. I am knitting in stockinette and changing colors every 4 rows. I have knit about 20 rows so far and they don't look very good at the beginning marker. I am twisting my yarn and carrying it along. The yarn I am carrying is showing through on the right side. Are there any tips for twisting it - maybe I am doing it wrong.
I am knitting the Children's Poncho from Knitting Pure & Simple. I am carrying the yarn that I am not using at my beginning marker by twisting it with the yarn I am currently using. I will try Jan's suggestion. However, I forgot to mention that I have to increase at every other row by knitting in the front & back, once before my marker and once after my marker. So, when I am increasing and changing yarn color at the same time, will the method recommended by Jan still work? Thanks for your help.
