How do you knit stripes without getting the colors messed up where the next stripe starts? From what Ive read on colorwork/intarsia you knit for the first few stitches with both colors, and then continue on in the new yarn. When I do this, you can always tell where I siwtched yarn because one or two stitches will be the wrong color. I hope this makes sense, confusing myself!<br><br>
Just looking to make it look seamless between stripes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

yeah, i just end a row on one color and start the next row w/ the new color, w/o doing any stitches together. i only knit two yarns together like that if i change balls mid-row. and i haven't found that right side/wrong side matters.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/offtopic.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="offtopic"> i got the lettuce and it's beautiful <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
