In my last post I demonstrated how to catch floats in stranded colorwork. Here are the Right Sides of the swatches:
And these are the Wrong Sides. It's easiest to see the strand catching at the tops of the swatches. The little Contrasting Color bumps across the tops of the backs don't have corresponding stitches on the front. That's where I caught the floats to reduce their length.
I love stranded colorwork, and I hope you will, too!
