How To Video: Carry Your Yarn When Knitting Stripes!

New Video Alert!  Today I wanted to share a technique that I get asked about all the time when people see me knitting stripes….how do you avoid all those extra ends to weave in???

Today, I’ll show you on one of my summer sweaters in progress, how to carry the extra color up the side of your work, so that things stay tidy, and you don’t have to spend DAYS weaving in ends when you finish knitting!


So what do you think?  Will you try this technique the next time you use stripes?  Leave a comment and let us know if this will help you avoid “stripe fear” because of all the ends!

Happy Summer Knitting!

    This is an excellent video. I am ready to knit stripes now. Two grandsons due in November will be wearing striped sweaters now.

      Thanks Maxine! Stripes look adorable on babies 🙂 You will have to send photos when they arrive & try on their sweaters!
