I am a self-taught beginner knitter, and for my first big project, I am working on this scarf:
I am a bit confused about how to join colors vertically. The way I have been doing it (I’ve finished about 1.5 inches of the vertical stripe pattern) is to join the colors by making a slip knot with the new color around the old color and weaving in the tails later. This is creating so much work and my version doesn’t look as nice as the pattern (see my photo).
Is there a better way to knit vertical stripes that doesn’t require so much weaving of tails?
