I’m knitting a hedgehog which I plan to use as a door stop. The pattern uses two different wools a normal 4 ply and an ‘eye lash’ type of wool for the prickly bits.
I need to cast on 3 stitches in 4 ply, a further 30 in ‘eye lash’ and then a further 3 in 4 ply. This continues throughout the pattern with increases every other row until 106 stitches. Do I carry the 4 ply wool across the back or should I ‘cut off and rejoin’.
