Gap When Using 2 Colors

Beautiful blanket pattern. Want to make another, first done in just one color, but making the border in a different color. Its an integrated border where you knit the bottom 16 rows and knit every first and last 8 stitches in each row. I tried just dropping the border color and picking up the body yarn, but i seem to have a gap between the edge of the blanket (yellow color) and the body of the blanket (blue color). Any suggestions? Thanks for any help.

Go to he video section and click on advanced techniques. You’ll be using the intarsia method since its integrated into the blanket.

You’ll be crossing the colors as it shows. The first one or two may be looser, but it’ll be fine when you weave in the ends.
