Ok, so I have completed my first scarf for Aaron- a solid blue scarf. I would now like to know how to make a scarf that has 2 different colors in it. Can you help Kristin...oh master of the needle (and by that I mean knitting needle...LOL! )

Okay, clarify for me and I'll tell you how to do it. Are you wanting to do two different colors kind of mottled together, or do you want to do stripes?

Not two different colors mottled together but stripes. Like maybe several rows of one color then switch and then back to the original color...etc

Alright. This is going to sound a little convoluted, but it's really not so bad.

Cast on and start knitting as usual. Do as many rows as you want with the first color.

Once you're ready to switch...CUT the yarn that's attached to your needle, but leave a long tail, since you're going to have to weave in the ends later. Then tie the new color onto the dangling tail and start knitting with it.

Repeat as often as you'd like to change colors. You'll have quite a few ends to weave in at the end, but it's not SO bad.

Let me know if that doesn't make any sense whatsoever!

Will the tied knot be hard to knit into the scarf? It all makes sense but I'm just wondering about that....

Also another question...should I count the number of rows I make as I go so I have the same number of each color? Or does it not really matter as long as its close

Nope, just tie the knots as close as you can to what you've already knitted. Then you'll use a plastic yarn needle to weave the long tails into the scarf and cut them off. It's not hard at all.

As far as counting...I do, because I'm a little OCD about my knitting that way. But you certainly don't HAVE to, as long as it's close. Or, you can intentionally make one color stripes larger than the others...whatever you want!
