Sorry to bump an old thread! I’m brand new here, and a fairly new knitter as well. I can’t sleep because I’m trying to figure out to do just what this thread is about.
I am making a scarf and need to alternate between two balls of yarn (it’s manos and the colors vary quite a bit). Even after backreading a lot of old threads, I still can’t figure out how to carry yarn up the side of my scarf, nor do I understand how to twist the two strands together and I most importantly, I can’t figure out how to start a new ball on the end of the row when it’s time to switch skeins (ie I don’t know where to place the yarn on my needle to begin the row). I casted on 26 times, knitted 2 rows, and now I’m just sitting here wondering how to start the new skein onto the needles.
Can anyone explain how I connect this “loose” ball of yarn to the portion of my scarf already knitted? I’m not sure if this makes sense, and I’m thinking I probably need someone to show me in person as I’m more a visual learner…but in the meantime, does anybody have any pictures or videos on how to do this, or can give step by step instructions to a very new knitter? thanks for any help!!
