Knitting with differnt colors

I’m working on a baby item using 3 different colors for stripes.
I was told just cut the previus yarn when I’m changing, but this will leave me with lots of hanging yarn. How to do this correctly?
Thanks Hidvegi

It depends on how many rows are in each color; if it’s just 2 or 4, you can twist them together at the edge where you change colors. If there’s more rows per color, then yes, cut them and later you weave in the ends.

If you need to cut cuz the color changes are spaced far apart, you can weave the tails as you go so don’t have to deal with them later. This technique works very well.


Hi, here is a link to a thread where I made some comments about this sort of thing before. Scroll down a couple to find my ideas.
