could anybody here teach me how to change yarn to make vertical stripes? i have 4 - 5 left over yarn with different color and i think i want to use them to make vertcial stripes scarf. i dont mind about d joining head at d beginning row. i can cover it with fringes. i have bored with horizontal stripes and i need to change with vertical stripes.

i ever try so many ways, but the colors dont bind between them. it ends  like i only make separate stripes in 1 needle. they dont bind each other. please help me. frustrate already!! Huh Cry Angry

PS. i am  making cable pattern not garter stitches. and i dont think it will be not look nice if i make a looooooonngg horizontal stripes and granted as vertical stripes. the V will look different

i'm not sure about the cable part, as i haven't done that yet, but i did a purse where each side had two colors knit vertically, knit it stockinette ... you just twist the strand of color #1 behind color #2, so they kind of lock together.  and the v's come out okay too .. i'll try to find a more helpful description.  i think it's the same way you twist the colors in the back for when you're doing color work.

dear mom, please send yarn.  and coffee.

I had the same problem - you need to learn intarsia. There is lots of stuff out on the web about it, or most LYS's probably have a class (that's where I learned) but it's basically all about twisted the yarn when you switch so that they stay together!
