I’m firm in knitting intarsia in the round. What I intend to knit has no other way out (that I wish to do).
I want to knit a friend a purse with DPNs. The purse consists in alternating squares (purple-white-purple-white), and a peace sign knitted with fair isle on top of them. So, the only thing I can do is use the intarsia method with the squares. (I will [I]not[/I] knit two flat pieces and sew them together)
I’ve read some techniques, and liked two of them:
- One consists on knitting until the end of the round, yarn over, turn the work, knit to the end again, and k2tog the last stitch with the previous yarn over. I don’t know why I think this will leave little holes lying around.
- The other one is knitting until the last stitch, wrapping the first stitch, turning the work, and going back on the knitting. I believe this would be neater?
Could anyone tell me which method is nicer-looking? And if anyone knows a better one, please tell me.
