Do you want to see what I’m working on?
I’m knitting Phi, a fabulously fun garter stitch shawl.
The shawl has stripes that can be quite thick, so you need to carry the unused yarn up the side of the thick stripes. I came up with a little technique for how to do this in a way that’s nearly invisible on the right side (a modification of the technique suggested by the designer), and I thought you might be interested!
Here’s the video!

Like the tutorial on carrying wool along edge – no ends. I wonder if you have ever considered carrying on both sides alternatively so the pattern of the carried yarn would be part of the design. I am on my way to a family wedding so haven’t time to experiment – don’t want to lose the thought before I get back. Good video and thanks. Lillian
The technique that the designer recommends has the carries more as a part of the design… I wanted it totally hidden.
Great idea Stacey. Thanks for sharing.
