What's the best way to join two colors in a scarf?
I'm a beginner knitter and I'm working on a two color scarf. It has 12 row stripes of two colors (navy and creme acrylic). I'm having trouble getting my rows to look straight where I've switched to the second color.
I've checked KnittingHelp.com and looked at those techniques and tried those that seemed applicable with no success. I always end up with a chunk of the main color where I would expect to see the second color, or vice versa.
What would be the best way to make the switch to the second color? Should I carry the yarn up?
Thanks so much for your help!
