Carrying Two Colors for Knit Stripes in the Round

Minimizing the number of yarn tails to be woven in later.

Once again, I’ll confess, I don’t like weaving in yarn tails. So, when I’m knitting stripes in the round, like for these Cubicle Socks, I usually carry the yarns up the inside instead of cutting and joining each time I change colors.

Even though it creates a slight ridge on the inside, I think it’s often neater and easier than weaving in dozens of yarn tails for a small project like this.
