Hello! I’m trying to knit this hat Resist hat and there are no instructions on how to do the lettering, there is just a chart. It doesn’t explain how to add the second color or anything. I’ve done the brim successfully and I wanted to know what the method of knitting lettering is even called. I’m not hip to the knitting lingo so I don’t even know how to search for tutorials. Does anyone have any leads on good videos or instructions for this type of knitting? Thank you! ️
According to the pattern page this is “stranded” colorwork. I did a Google search and got this. You can check out some videos or other tutorials and any questions you have someone will be able to answer I’m sure. I am not good at stranded work so I’ll let someone else help you beyond the search.
Here’s a video for the stranded (fair isle) knitting.
Just start using the second color where the chart indicates, leaving about a 6 inch tail to weave in later. The first stitch may seem loose but you can always give a slight tug to the tail to snug it up.
