I watched Amy’s videon on the stranding method for knitting with two colors, and I understand how to do that part. Here’s where my frustration is. I am knitting in the round with my main color (MC). I need to knit one row with my contrast color (CC), then do the second row alternating MC and CC (the Fair Isle part), then a third row with CC, and finally, return to knitting with MC.
When I began that three row sequence (the stripe row of CC, the Fair Isle part of MC and CC, and that last row of CC), it left a slight hole in my knitting, and I don’t know why. It almost looked like I had dropped a stitch (like a nylon’s “run”), but I hadn’t–all my stitches were on the needle–and once I returned to knitting as usuall with MC, everything looked beautiful and was fine.
So what did I do wrong? :shrug: Is there a trick to changing colors when knitting in the round that I didn’t know about to prevent this from happening? I’ve never had trouble with knitting in the round before.
