Hello all! I am new to the board and new to knitting. I am a left-hander. I am trying to work what I thought was a simple blanket pattern that has two colors. This is my first attempt at adding a second color and I am not having much luck. I made it through the first solid row and the second row of alternating colors then I realized that I am not properly stranding on the solid rows as I distorted the pattern. I need to know how to strand for an entire row of one color so that I may pick up the other color at the end.
The pattern I am working is:
7 rows stockinette in color 1
8th row purl in color 2
9th row knit alternate color 2 and 1
10th row purl in color 2
11th+ row stockinette in color 1
The pattern does not repeat until 7 rows in from the opposite end of the work approximately 13 inches from the beginning.
Thanks for your help.
