CHIX Meeting – Joining stripes

Paula will walk us through a technique to join two garter strips together. Hope to see you at the zoom meeting.

Supplies: Worsted yarn in color A and color B, size 7 (4.5mm) knitting needle, US 8/H (5mm) crochet hook, waste yarn holder, tapestry needle to fit waste yarn.

Homework: Color A using cast on  10 stitches using the long tail method. The cast on row is the first row and the right side. Do not slip stitches at the beginning or end of the rows. Knit 11 rows then place on waste yarn holder. Leave a tail. Repeat again using Color B.

You will be making two strips using two different colors of yarn. First strip using color A, cast on 10 stitches.
