Putting a different colour in the middle!

Hi I’m making a little penguin and it involves 2 colours one which is white in the middle for its belly what I’m trying to figure out is how I can do this without having a hole on either side of the white and also when carrying the other colour across how can I stop it from bulking out the white??

Welcome!
Maybe you should work this as intarsia rather than carrying the colors over? Is it worked in the round? Can you give us a pattern link?

I don’t have a link it’s basically 21 stitches then you knit 7 grey 7white 7grey again Iv been YouTubing intarsia Iv never heard of this until today! Going to give it a try and hope for the best

Here’s a video for intarsia but as you say, there are many more on YouTube. It is a little more complicated to work in the round but it you are working back and forth, it just fine.

Hi ya yea I was working back and fourth and it turned out perfectly there’s no bulking and it’s much much tidier thanks for your help do :slight_smile:
