I am knitting my second sweater, its got 4 colours in it. Its a simple pattern for a toddler sweater. My problem is I am not sure how to join the colours of yarn. For now I am simply cutting the yarn of the colour I am finished with and tying the new colour to the couple of inches I have left.
I watched the Intarsia video and it seems like an option though I wouldn’t know exactly how much yarn to prep for knitting intarsia style. If I don’t have enough do I simply tie on some more? Is there another style of using more than 2 colours for a piece of knitting?
As it is I have the equivalent of very long fringe on the one side of my piece. I am currently working the back of the sweater.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
