help - 2 color garter, with short rows, for shawl topper - how to?

help! how to knit 2-color garter stitch, with short rows, where the colors change after 2 rows (1 ridge). when they overlap, do you carry the 2 colors together for a few stitches, knit double stranded, break yarn and start anew each time? i’m finding a lot of brioche short row help videos online, but this is for regular knitting… ack!

As long as you change colors on the front side the change won’t leave the color blip. I would probably carry the color, but it may make a difference depending on what you are making. If you carry the yarn across a few stitches make sure it’s not pulled tightly just like with stranding.
