Knit Perfect

In fair isle, the unused colour is loosely carried along the back of the work between stitches. Carrying the yarn between stitches is called stranding and you can strand yarn across if the pattern is small and the colours are changed frequently. However, if the yarn is to be stranded over five stitches or more, the loop will be too long and it will get snagged and distort the fabric.You must catch the loop in on the centre stitch of a long strand to prevent this.This is called weaving in.
