JC26 Two Color Reversible Knitting with Lily Chin

How often have you made scarves or shawls or afghans, wishing the “other side” was just as presentable?

Find out which method works best for intended motifs. Proficiency Level: Intermediate – must be comfortable working with 2 colors within the same row; be able to follow charts with ease; and be able to follow verbal, written, and charted directions. Homework:
