Sending my best wishes to alf for a happy, healthy and peaceful new year.
i want to do a striped scarf and have tried the technique to change colour with adding the different colour yarn hooking it up on the needle but i am finding this really challenging because it is really loose on the edge and the weaving in the ends doesn’t look as neat as I would like. there’s also the problem that on one side (wrong side), the stripe doesnt look right.
i m certain that i once saw a video where the joining of the 2 different colours was done with joining the 2 yarns with the invisible knot method. i cant find the video anymore though…
would you use the knotting the 2 yarns technique? would that hold ok and would that solve the weird looking stripe on one of the sides?
would that work whether you are purling or using the knit stitch?
do you have a video link you could share?
also, what is your view on scarf knitted with needles versus using a knitting loom?
i really want to do a good job because those next 2 scarves will be for my nephews.
thanks very much
