Stranding - 3 yarns per row!
Anastasiya has a few motifs that use 3 yarns per row - like the very first motif after the ribbing! It took me a while to get my head around how to do this.....as usual with all things, there are many ways you can handle 3 strands per row, and here are a few ways I've tried.
The main thing, as in all stranding, is to set the position of your yarns, and keep them that way
Background shade - top
Pattern shade - bottom (2 shades per row - middle on rows with 3 shades per row)
Accent shade - always along the bottom.
I've tried to show different techniques of stranding 3 shades per row to help you customize your own personal stranding style.
