I recently bought the ‘Stitch and Bitch: A knitters handbook’ book, and want to create the ‘Geek’ wristband. This is a two color pattern, with one color being the wristband, and the other color being the writing ‘geek’ in the middle of the band itself. The book says that the Intarsia method of knitting is to complex for this project, and that I should just “Carry the contrasting yarn across” I’m not sure how to do this.
I’ve knit with two colors before to create horizontal stripes, and carried the yarn up the side, but I’m not sure how to carry it across an entire row. When I did it before I just carried the contrasting color up ever time the colors met, I never had to switch colors in the middle of a row before. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Tips? Tricks? Video tutorials? Thanks again! Let me know if I need to clarify =]
