CARRYING YARNS PARALLEL TO THE SELVEDGE this is a tutorial we've filmed for my new #rhinebeckhat but you can of course use this method anywhere where you need to change yarn at the edge but want that yarn change to be tucked away on the WS. What I do here is carry the yarn upwards, 3 stitches in from the edge. Firstly, I cross the yarns so that Yarn B (the yarn being carried) crosses Yarn A (background yarn) by crossing right to left - this helps carry the yarn away from the selvedge. And in my Rhinebeck Hat pattern, I do this in row 42. Then, to ensure Yarn B is closer to the selvedge for the next time we need it, we cross Yarn B with Yarn A by crossing it left to right - and in my Rhinebeck Hat pattern I do this in row 46. You can see how this looks at the very end of the tutorial - nice & even, & it helps keep the selvedge clean. I'll also add that I always slip the first stitch of the row at the brim edge on sideways knit Hats as I find for me it gives a much better finish (I'm an English thrower of the sloppiest kind!) And that's all I've done to create the edge you see in my Rhinebeck Hat photos - neat, huh? #learnitwithwoolly #knitvideo #instatutorial #instavideo #woollywormhead #knittechniques #knittech #howtoknit #knittersofig #woollywormheadtutorials #videoknitting #videotutorial #videoknits #shortrowcolourwork #learntoknit #garterintarsia #garterstitchmagic #garterstitch #igvideo #instaknit #instaknitting
