Specialized Knitting Techniques

In certain patterns there are larger areas of color within the piece. Since this type of pattern requires a new color only for that section, it is not necessary to carry the yarn back and forth across the back of the fabric. For this type of color work, use a separate ball, bobbin or "butterfly" of yarn for each color so that each color is available only where needed. In order to prevent holes when changing colors, bring the new color around the old color from beneath to twist the yarns.
