How to Knit: Stripes (Part II) - Carry Yarn up the Side of Your Knitting | Weave in Yarn Tails

This is the second part of my mini video series all about how to knit stripes (in flat knitting). This particular demonstration will show you how to alternate between 2 different yarn colours.

This video tutorial is aimed at beginners and teaches the following:

- How to weave in yarn tails whilst you knit along, and

- How to carry yarn up the side of your knitting, so you can more efficiently alternate between 2 different yarn colours (without having to cut yarns and weave in yarn tails).

I hope this video is useful to you. Thanks for watching!

If you don't know the difference between circular and flat knitting, I'll just give a little overview first - but I'll also be doing a more in-depth lesson soon.

Even though circular knitting needles are used in both of these examples, only the knitting on the right is circular knitting, whilst the knitting on the left is flat knitting. You can tell because the circular knitting always forms a circle or tube, so there is no separation between the ends of the rows.
