no, i haven’t forgotten all the other projects i’m working on… but while they’re all happening, my brain is muddling http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/twisted-up-reversible-striped-hat for using up some thick/thin fall color yarn with a metallic thread throughout. i don’t have much of it, so was thinking about incorporating it every 3rd or 4th round.
if i want to do a jogless stripe, i work with MC for 1 round, and then when starting the 2nd round, i slip the 1st stitch… and then it sort of works itself out, and blocking helps work it out even more afterwards. that i get.
but what if after that i only want to do 1 round of the CC (in this case the ‘special’ yarn)? would i work 1 round, and then stop, or work 1 round and then slip the 1st stitch of what would be the 2nd round… but not actually keep going with CC. instead start the 2nd stitch in MC, with a float on the back…? how do i keep 1 round of a CC still jogless, i guess is my question.
yes, i will have to swatch, and play with it in person, but i thought maybe somebody’s already done the harder part of the legwork for me… anyone?
