In part one of this Masterclass we covered holding the needles and the three options of using the left hand, right hand or both hands to hold the two yarns. Now we'll look at the importance of consistent stranding and weaving, dealing with yarn ends and joining a new yarn, and 'invisible' changes.
The importance of consistent stranding and weaving
As you work along the row, you’ll notice that the yarn not in use between the small blocks of colour automatically becomes stranded across the back of the work, creating a ‘float’.
It’s important that the floats are carried in a consistent manner so that the yarns don’t become twisted and the tension of the knitted pieces is kept regular.
