Hello there!

I am doing my first intarsia project, which is a pillow with a cat curled up on it.  The pattern is from Ravelry at this link:  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cat-pillow

My question is: when I'm doing the intarsia part, do I carry yarn across the back when I'm not using it?  Or would I have three balls of yarn going at once: one for the left side, one for the cat, and one for the right side?

I hope that makes sense.  This might be something that is easier than it sounds in my head, but I'm a little nervous to start. 

Thank you to any advice Smiley

You're probably best off using separate balls so that you don't end up with loads of yarn wasted as you carry it behind.

Thank you summerfun, I decided to just jump in and it makes much more sense when you're actually doing it.  I did of course use different balls and realized that carrying so much yarn over would've been ridiculous.  Thanks for the help Smiley
