I am trying to knit these slippers, but am having a hard time understanding how to knit with 2 colours. So, here are my questions that I’m hoping y’all can help me with…!!!
So, I cast on with the light colour for 66 sts., then turn my needles around and knit 6 stitches with the same colour, then add in the darker colour, drop the light colour and knit 6 in the darker colour. Then for the next 6 lighter stitches, do I just reach back and grab the light strand again? I’ve watched Amy’s video for intarsia (hopefully, that’s what these slippers are…) and I think I’m doing it right. After I’ve finished my first row with both colours, if you look at the back, there are long pieces of the yarn, going from where I dropped it to where I picked it up again. I’m guessing that so far I’m alright, but here is where I get really confused.
What the heck do I do when I turn my needles around and not only is that extra strand of yarn back there, but so are the long stretches of yarn???
Is this making sense to anyone (it’s hardly making sense to me and it’s right in front of me ) Can anyone PLEASE give me some pointers???
