Knitting a sweater. Using Helical Spiral to avoid color pooling and for the garter stitch hem to eliminate the vertical seam.
Since the two yarns were similar colors, I brought yarn to front temporarily to serve as a moveable stitch marker so I could tell when to be ready to switch yarns.
I rolled the yarn balls in two shapes to help keep me on track the the Helical garter stitch. I knitted the purl working from the sphere shape ball and when I picked up the working yarn from the cake, I knew to be ready to knit.
Question: The how-to video had the helical started after the ribbing. When applying helical right after cast-on, what's the best way to set it up. I purled a full row. Then knitted almost a full row and slipped three stitches to start purling again. But that area looked thinner like it lacked a row, making the edge have a bit of a jog. I evened it up with darning needle but wondered if there's a better set-up.
