Three colour cast on

Posted on

My carriage jams knitting the first row. I don’t know what I am doing wrong. Should I use three colours together or alternate them? I am using Tension 10.

Hi Tanna

I know it’s a while since you posted your query but I did have a go at a three colour cast on.

If you bring the needles out to Holding Position but have the carriage set to knit you can weave the yarns over and under the needles – over one under two so that the different colours form a repeating pattern across the needles. Hang the cast on comb push the comb back to the gate pegs thread the carriage with one of the yarns and knit carefully across.

I hope this answers your query
