I’m a new forum member and a relatively new knitter. I have some basic questions about how to change colors in a row, as in intarsia knitting. I’ve read about how to twist the yarn and how to keep the colors wound in bobbins, but I tried it and am really confused! Additionally, the instructions I’ve found in books and online begin after several rows have been completed.
I’m looking for very simple directions on how to start the first mid-row color change in a project. I am practicing by trying to knit a heart shape in a contrasting color to the background. But whenever I try, I wind up with a mess of random loops in both colors on the needles. Can anyone help? Thanks!
