Thank you so much for all your nice words. He is very happy with them, speechless once he put them on.

It's not so difficult if you know how to carry the yarn in the back, found a very useful video on Youtube called Strandedn Colorwork English and Continental and i was very happy because i knit English style Smiley and had to carry the white and red yarn (same way a crochet) with the left hand in the huge blue spaces.

Now i have several personal projects but i want to add a Fair Isle hat because its very cold and windy here in Mexico City Smiley

Muchas gracias girls n boys !!!

Thank u  so much!!

Once u start to practice its very easy to carry along the thread i used the same technique the whole time which it was to knit the main color and every 3-5 stitches loop over the right needle the second, third color, just right before to knit  with the main color, and making a twist "the old yarn over the new one" when about to knit with a new color this will create a twist that will hide any gaps between every color change

Happy weekend!
