Hi. I’m making a tubular scarf with stranded color work. I don’t want to keep it an open tube at the ends. The pattern calls for 10 rows of 1x1 ribbing before the color work starts. It is 100 stitches around. My thought is to knit the ribbing flat, then place every other stitch onto 2 separate needles. So each K is on the front needle and each P is on the back needle, 50 per needle. Then I want to join the front 50 to the back 50 into circular knitting for the stranded portion. Then when I get to the end of the stranded stuff, I would reverse the process, returing to ribbing flat.
Does this sound like it could work to anyone else but myself? I really want to avoid seaming. Hahaha.
