I am making a simple striped bag, 4 rows in purple, 4 rows in lavendar, till desired length. Here is my question, each time that I switch colors, should I cut the yarn and sew it in later (i will be putting sides in, so I will need yarn anyway) or is there something else I can do…leave the yarn where it is, pick it up again after 4 rows? is that something that is done, or does that just cause more complications.
So far, I have done both things stated above and am getting a [I]very[/I] messy stockinette edge, which i will probably cover up by sewing into the second row rather than the first one when I put the sides in.
Regardless, the question still stands, shall I cut the yarn each time at the end of 4 rows or leave it and pick it up?
Thanks in advance.
