Here I go again with my attempts to master two color knitting. What I love about the tutorial on this page (under “How to knit with 2 colors at a time”) is that they teach you how to create your own center-pull bobbinless bobbins for your alternating colors. This will work well for my blanket as I’ve decided not to embroider the animals.
Also on this page are some very helpful tutorials on this page including how to make a buttonhole and also do two sided knitting. Also, this site demonstrates all techniques in both English and Continental (German) style knitting.
