Working with Two Colors
When I am working with two colors I prefer to not tie on and fasten off every single round. To me it is time consuming and there are several more ends to work in once I have completed my project. So, to help keep things quick and clean I came up with this method.
In this post I am going to show you how I work with two colors and without having to tie on and fasten off. To me this method is very helpful, quicker and neater. I have included some photo tutorials to show you exactly what I did.
Step 1: Here I have worked my pattern to the desired height using Color A
Step 2: Now I am ready to start working with Color B. Attach color the round below the round you are currently working on.
Step 3: Now that I have joined Color B, I join into the beginning of my first stitch using Color B (join according to your pattern instructions).
Work your pattern accordingly using Color B.
Step 4: When you are to start working with Color A again you simply bring up Color A when joining.
You will repeat Step 4 by changing your color until your instructions tell you to fasten off that color. At that point you simply fasten off that particular color and keep working with the other color until further instructed.
