Does this look right? (carrying yarn)

I’m starting my first knitting project and am baffled by carrying the yarn for stripes. I’m doing the chevron scarf from last minute knitted gifts.

Is this how it’s supposed to look? Am I doing it wrong? Is there a way to keep it from showing so much?

THANKS!!!

I think that looks correct, you might want to be a little looser though.

Tracy,
That looks quite nice actually. I think that you’ve done a great job on it.:woot: :notworthy:

Thank you! I’m so excited it’s right!!! I just assumed I was doing it wrong.:happydance:

Looks great! To make sure there’s enough play in the edge, see how much stretch it has as compared to the opposing side. If it’s noticably shorter/tighter, then loosen your carries a bit. You don’t want to end up with a trapezoid.
