FAQ: Changing Colors When Knitting?

How do you alternate colors when knitting in the round?

Here’s how to ADD COLOR ON A CIRCULAR NEEDLE.

  1. Take your new color and fold it over the left needle, leaving a tail.
  2. Knit the stitch.
  3. Knit 3 more stitches with the new color, using the tail to make double stitches.
  4. Drop what’s left of the tail and continue knitting with the new color to the end of the row.

Can you change yarn in the middle of a row?

To join new yarn in the middle of a row, when about 36 inches of the old yarn remains, work several more stitches with the old yarn, working the stitches over the end of new yarn (shown in double crochet). Then change yarns in stitch as previously explained.

How do you change the color of a continuous round?

To make a standard colour change when working in continual rounds you are effectively changing colours mid- round. This is how it works: You would pull through the new colour on the last pull through of the stitch just before you want to change colour. Then you would simply continue working in rounds.
