  1. Hi Staci! Eu gostaria de saber como trocar de cores em trico circular (num sueter top-down. Você corta a linha e faz pequenos nós, ou usa outra técnica? Eu estou tricotando o sueter com listras finas coloridas, o que resulta em muitos nós. Por favor, me ajude. Obrigada. Soila
    *A sua dica de tricotar o ponto abaixo para emendar a cor diferente eu já uso, mas aqui no Brasil não existe lã 100 %, todas tem acrílico no fio. Então penso que dar um nó é a forma mais segura de não soltar e ter um buraco depois.

  2. I’d like to know how to change colors in knitting circular (a top-down sweater. You cut the line and makes little knots, or use another technique? I’m knitting a sweater with thin colored stripes, which results in many nodes. On please help me. Thank you. Soila * Your hint knitting section below to amend a different color I use, but here in Brazil does not have 100% wool, all have acrylic yarn. So I think that a knot is the safer not to let loose and have a hole later.

    thak you.

  3. Nice video. Please show us your technique how to add a new color yarn in circular knitting to avoid the jag? Some patterns have one or two inch stripes of different colors that make carrying the yarn up the edge too messy and cutting and tying the yarns too often and too messy. Must be a good way to do this neatly and without the jag. Thanks Patricia

  4. I am making a dish cloth (might be a good pattern for a blanket too) that requires a color change every 4 rows. 1 1/2 inches and I’ve got piles of tails! Yuk! I would like to know how to change colors without having to weave in 50 ends when I’m done. Can you help? Please!

  5. Hi there,

    I’m fairly new to the world of knitting and have been working on a couple little animal projects from Rebecca Danger’s book – ’50 yards of frustration… I’m mean – ’50 yards of fun!! Anyhow, the ‘Bantam Bunny’ which uses two colors for the body – alternates each row, knitting magic loop method. I’ve scoured the net trying to find some assistance videos without any luck. Do you have a videos showing alternating rows of two colors? I watched your ‘changing colors’ video above but need some more tips on alternating colors. 1 rnd A, 2 rnd B, 3 rnd A, 4 rnd B,, etc.
    Thanks so much.

  6. Hi Staci,

    Is there a trick to joining, and for changing colors for stripes, at the beginning of a row when the first stitch is a slip stitch?

    Your videos are very helpful. Thank You

  7. Mary Lynn – I don’t have a video on that but this is the short answer…if you’re pattern has you slipping the first stitch, you’ll want to knit the first stitch on the rows where you’ve changed color. I just worked a pattern where this very thing came into play!

  8. Hi Staci, I was ready to pull my hair out with that slip stitch question. I even lost sleep last night over it. Thank you for your help.

    I was having trouble posting a reply, so I apologize if this is a duplicate.

    Love the dog pictures, too.
