Joining second color

I’m working on a baby hat pattern and after I casted into my DPNs it’s saying to join in the second color and then do rows 1-10 of the edge color. Why would I join the second color in right away? Wouldn’t I wait until I’m ready to do that row? I’m a total newbie so apologies if his is a dumb question!

Welcome to KH!

That seems odd to me, too. I’ve many striped and helix hats and you add color as needed. Do you have a pattern name and link so we can see it?

Here’s a link to the pattern on Etsy! https://www.etsy.com/listing/198864067/slouchy-hat-newborn-hat-knitting-pattern?ref=shop_home_feat_2

Cute! I see now point in adding the second color now for this.

You mean “no” correct? :slight_smile:

Oops! Yes, I see NO point. :wink:
