Alternating skeins in the round invisibly

If RS is in stocking stitch:

  1. start with both yarns held at the front
  2. bring working yarn to the back and start working in st st
  3. at Beginning of Round (BoR), first bring yarn from old skein (the one you just worked with) to the front, then bring yarn from new skein to the back (no interlocking between yarns)

If RS is reverse st st, then you do the opposite:

  1. start with both yarns held at the back
  2. bring working yarn to the front and start working in purl st
  3. at BoR, first bring yarn from old skein to the back, then bring yarn from new skein to the front

Below is the video I learned from (the demonstration of this technique starts at minute 1:55):

I used to knit as a girl, then hanged the needles for two/three decades, and now I’m back, and loving it! The photo is my version of Linda Marveng's Aki, the first proper project after "being born again". After getting back into knitting, weaving has also become my passion (with a little sewing to turn my handweaving into garments).
