Alternating Hand Dyed Yarns

When you’re using hand dyed yarns, it’s a good idea to have two balls of yarn going at once to avoid color pooling. In this video I demonstrate how I keep the work neat while alternating two balls of yarn.

The Knitter’s Pride 16” circulars I use in the video can be found here.

You can find more information about Knitter’s Pride needles from these retailers:

The scarf pattern I mention in the video can be found here.

The hand-dye yarns I use in the video are both by Twisted Owl Fibers, more info here.

My nail polish is by Julep, color “Channon”.

  1. Thanks for a great demonstration of this techniqe. It is also particularly useful when sweater knitting with variegated yarns, where you have several areas with different stitch counts and the colors disperse differently. For instance when you are knitting in the round then switch to flat when you get to the armholes and neckline, or if you have a back and two fronts for a cardigan knitted flat, and also the different number of stitches all along the sleeves as you decrease (or increase) could result in a different look in each area. This technique can keep things looking more alike. Also for yarns with longer color sections working one ball from the outside and one from the inside reverses the color sequence and that may help as well.
