I've just started knitting this hat:
but now that I'm about to start the actual colorwork, I have a question. I watched the video about fair isle knitting, but it only addresses knitting with 2 colors.
With a hat such as this, do you carry ALL the colors, or just the ones that are used in the row you are working on?
For example, when the colorwork starts, rows 1-5 are beige & red. Then you don't use red again till row 19. Should I end the red at the end of row 5, weave in the end and start it new at row 19?
What is there is a smaller gap? Yellow is used in rows 6-7, then again in rows 12-13, 18-19, etc.
I'm sure this is a silly question, but I can't find the answer anywhere! Thanks!
