Hi. I have watched numerous videos by now about intarsia and feel as if I mostly get it, but still need some clarification.
I will use this chart for a scarf: http://knithit.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/maple-leaf-diagram-7634.jpg
My confusion is mainly when the red starts expanding: after the leaf stem at row 6, it grows by 5. So, at this point, would it be best to start a NEW bobbin of red to avoid an unsightly float?
To begin: I would have the first white, red (stem), then a second white, then at row 6, start a second red (and abandon the red that would have still been in the centre from the stem or use that to keep travelling out? or wouldn’t matter?).
Any input would be appreciated!
