So, I'm currently on a trip, ran out of yarn, and LUCKILY found a LYS. I bought some malabrigo for the first time in dark charcoal and spring green, and I have an idea for a project. After several attempts, I can't seem to understand what I'm doing wrong! I saw a simple striped scarf pattern done in intarsia, with each new vertical stripe being worked as a separate ball of yarn. I like that idea, but I really love working things on the bias. I suppose I'm biased that way. I know, boooo. (look, it's all I got.)
Here's my idea...I want to do a biased scarf with a vertical stripe running up the middle. It has to be possible, but I haven't gotten it to look right! After ripping it out several times, my yarn is almost as frazzled as I am. Any ideas?
Here's what I've been doing...
knit front, back, and front again
kfb, knit to last, kfb (rs)
I continued this pattern until I had about 15 sts, then added the green, then after I had 3 green sts, switched back to grey.
I know that my green sts need to kind of slide over and stack on top of each other to get that vertical stripe look, but they keep moving up the bias! It wouldn't be so confusing for me if I started the new color at the end of a row, but starting in the middle, increasing, then adding another color while continuing to increase is really messing me up.
If someone can figure this out, it would really save the day!
