I’m working a very simple scarf pattern for my little 9 year old neighbor using blue and red. It’s a Ravenclaw Harry Potter scarf pattern I found online to whip up fast and perfect for a little boy.
:?? Problem is that this is the first time I’ve knitted using 2 colors and when I add the red yarn row to the completed blue rows I’m finding bumps/lines of red showing through the blue on both sides of the scarf… showing up on the wrong side (I prefer one side of this pattern and call it the “right” side) along the knitted sts and on the right side on the purl sts.
The pattern is K7, P24, K7. Very simple. But I really dislike the red yarn showing up in the blue areas. Is there any way at all to avoid this?? Does it make any difference if I use the English vs. Cont. method?? I’m so frustrated as this was supposed to be a quick project for the little angel and he really needs this scarf to keep warm here in freezing MA.
Thanks in advance for your advice,
