1  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / intarsia in the round ? on: December 17, 2004 09:35:42 AM
hey everyone! This is not a SNB project, but I am attached to y'all so I hope you don't mind me asking my question here...
I am using SNB's intarsia instructions to make a Christmas stocking for my 6 mo old daughter that has elmo wearing a Christmas hat on it. I'm working it in the round so I have less finishing at the end (on dpns though so the heel and toe are easy to do) but I'm confused...

SNB says that when working with 1 block of color, there should be 3 strands, 1 for before the block of color, 1 for the block of color itself, and then 1 for after the block of color. How does this translate when working in the round? I have so far just been cutting my ends whenever I come to the color and starting fresh on the other side, however, if possible, I would like to have fewer ends to weave in when done. Any thoughts?

TIA, katie
