I'm trying to make a bag and the gusset part supposed to be striped. I'm supposed to cast on 13 stitches, knit the first and second rows, pearl the third and then knit the forth and then every switch colors and repeat. First I tried to just carry the yarn from one stripe up to the next stripe. Then it was looking a little wonky because the last stiches of the colored rows and the first stitch was loose so I re-cast on and tried to weave in all of the ends as I go. This seems like it's taking an excessive amount of time for what should be really simple... right? Right??
What is the best way to do this?
