GARTER STITCH INTARSIA - RS this is a technique used in my Parallelo & Korra patterns, and less obviously in Azula. Changing yarns with the right side of the work facing is pretty straightforward - simply swap them over on the rear of the work without pulling either yarn too tightly. There's a temptation to pull the yarn tight to reduce sag but that only ends up messing up the tension either side of the transition - give it a gentle tug & keep the yarn firm, but not too tight. If you can, always swap the yarns over in the same direction (right over left) so that they naturally interlock on the back. Video for changing yarns on WS to follow! We had loads of problems with the light & exposure during recording of these & couldn't edit it away - hope it doesn't distract too much! . #learnitwithwoolly #instaknit #instavideo #knittechniques #knittech #knittingvideo #igvideo #garterintarsia #garterstitch #learntoknit #knittutorial #knitters #knitstagram #knits #woollywormhead #knittingtutorial
GARTER STITCH INTARSIA - WS changing yarns with the wrong side of the work facing means that we have to bring the working yarn forward to swap it over. The yarn we're changing to is already sitting on the WS, the side facing you, after being swapped over previously. To achieve a neat change we bring the yarn forward, swap it over with the new yarn, then take the new yarn to the back away from you and carry on knitting. The same as before applies - keep the yarn firm but don't pull it too tight else you'll end up making the join more uneven. There's a bit more involved in changing the yarn on this side but it's worth it to ensure a neat front to the work, and a tidy transition point. . #learnitwithwoolly #instavideo #instatutorial #knittechniques #knittingtutorial #knittech #technicalknitting #woollywormhead #garterintarsia #garterstitch #videotutorial
