Sometimes referred to as Swedish Weaving or inlay, learn this technique of applying a separate strand of yarn to your work without actually knitting it. Instead, this “weaving yarn” goes through the knit fabric and sits either in front or in back of the fabric, creating an added layer of warmth. This is a fresh and easy way of getting color patterning without having to learn Fair Isle Knitting. This imparts a texture that mimics weaving. Use up scrap yarns, find a use for that “problem” yarn, and deal with scratchy yarns. Learn to chart up your own patterns, too.
