How do you knit a striped scarf?

March 30th, 2010 · No Comments · How To Knit A Scarf

I found on a website somewhere that if you want thick stripes for a scarf you have to cut the ends and start a new color…..but my question is, Do you bind each one off and then sew them together or do you cut it off while keeping it on the needle and just continue to knit, but with a new color?

someone help.

and if you know of any good knitting sites for beginners with patterns and such, it would be appreciated!!

No, you don’t want to bind off until your scarf is the desired length. As other writers have indicated, you just want to leave a tail long enough to weave in from both your last yarn and your new yarn. Try not to tie them if you can avoid it.
There is another method of making stripes you might enjoy. If you cast on the length of your scarf, instead of the width, say 100 or 120 stitches. Knit 4 or 5 rows in each of several colors until scarf is desired width.
