I recently started learning double sided knitting with youtube videos.
I’m currently knitting a scarf one side red one side yellow, with 2 stripes at the ends and some letters in the middle of the scarf.
I noticed that when i was doing the stripes there were some bumps because of how i arranged the yarn coming from the ball while knitting (red in front or yellow in front), and the red/yellow yarns got tangled together so when i knitted the two sides the yarn in the middle pulls the two sides together at spots and the two sides can’t be pulled apart. So I carefully held the yarn in place and made sure they didn’t tangle for rest of the scarf so i can pull the two sides apart (like a hollow tube but knitted together at the ends).
Now I’m doing the letters and I have to switch colours and I can’t avoid the yarns tangling and keeping the two sides together. Is this normal? Is there any thing I can do to keep the yarn separate even when I’m switching colours back and forth (so the two sides can be pulled apart)?
