KNITTING TIP 1:
No of sts is divisible with uneven number when English rib is worked. To make an English rib in stripes work back and forth on a circular needle as follows: Work 1st and 2nd row as explained below. Move all sts on circular needle to the other end of circular needle so that next row can be worked with a new color from same side as 2nd row. Then turn piece and work the next 2 rows from the other side the same way as 2nd and 3rd row. That means that 1 row is worked with every color from same side before turning the piece.

KNITTING TIP 2:
If you are in doubt, see what color the previous row was worked with on the color of edge st.
