I need some advice/help on my log cabin blanket. I’ve finished all the concentric strips of color and need to finish up with the last two ‘blocks’ of color. I hope its okay I write part of the pattern down, here goes:
“Block 9: This block creates two rectangles side by side. Use the intarsia method of lifting one color over the other when changing colors, to avoid a hole where the colors change.” :?:
Turn work so that the edge containing blocks 1,2,4,6 and 8 is at the top, RS facing. Count 33 row ends of block 4 and place marker at this center point of block 4. you will be picking up along cast-on edge of block 1 and row ends of blocks 2,4,6 and 8. Using B, pick up 142 sts to marker. Join D and pick up 132 sts. Knit 99 garter ridges, lifting one color over the other when changing colors. BO.
I basically know that I have to pick up my stitches and knit all the rows, what’s confusing me is this ‘intarsia method’ they are referring to. What hole? What is this Lifting one color over the other mean??
please oh please can’t someone help me?
