I've been knitting for a while now, and I know how to do the stranding and intarsia method for knitting with two colors, but i am making my scarf with letters in it - the letters being a different color. my problem is that it is based off of a band name and the letters are extremely blocky like their logo.. it also has a sidways medic symbol.. here is an example of the one i made, but i need an alternative way
i was just using the stranding method but it is of course pulling my work during the letters with a lot of stitches in between the colors... ive tried making those strands of yarn in the back as loose as possible without it looking awful, but it is just not working.. i have also tried intarsia but because it is another strand of yarn from the one i was working with and it is all straight lines, my work was separating..
does anyone have any suggestions on how i could make this scarf without these problems?
(and btw, im so glad this forum is here.. i will probably be lingering around for a while ^_^)
