Video - Carrying Yarn Up the Side

Stripes are an easy way to add a pop of color to a knitting project, and adding some texture within those stripes is even better! But you don't want to cut the yarn and rejoin it every time you have a new color—that would leave you with a lot of ends to weave in at the end of the knitting. Instead, carry your yarn along with you. In today's how-to video, I demonstrate how you can carry the unused colors up without distorting the fabric or having to cut and rejoin yarn with each color. Use this trick to knit Jeanie, our free pattern in this issue of KnitBits. Designed by Brenda York, Jeanie uses three colors of Berroco Elba™ and combines stripes with simple textures for a knock out springtime sweater.
