Introduction to stranded colour work tutorial – Activity 6

Activity 6: Knit in the round to the armholes.

You should have completed Activity 5: Reinforce first steek.

This activity is on page 14 of the handout.

Continue knitting in the round

This activity completes rounds 9 to 14, working in the round.

Although you have been working flat in Activity 4, you do not need to do anything special to return to knitting in the round. Just start the new round with the steek stitches, just as you did working the first few rounds of the motif.

Beware of round 13

Don’t let round 13 be unlucky for you. Motif and background colours both change in that round.

You are ready for the next activity

Stranded knitting worked in the round until round 14 of the motif for the Introduction to Stranded Knitting tutorial has been completed.

If you resisted temptation, your work should look something like the photograph.

You are ready to move to the next activity: Activity 7: Start steeks for armholes.
