  • As I commented somewhere else, I highly recommend this video from Philosopher’s Wool for colorwork knitting, especially in the round. They teach four, easily learned stitches which weave the yarn in as you go. You never knit more than two stitches of one color so no long floats. And the big bonus is your yarns never get twisted up! I’m very far from an expert knitter and have only done a few stranded colorwork pieces in my life, but this method made it so much more enjoyable for me. Even when I knit a sweater that was not in the round, I could at least use this on the right side rows. I think I even figured something out for the purl rows, but I’m not sure now. It was a long time ago.
