When you need to change color in a job on p. ribs, work. the first iron with the new color to say the least. on the right of the work, to avoid knots of contrasting color being seen.

If some colored rows are made up of an odd number of rows, work with double stitch needles, so as not to have to break the thread at every color change. To make the stitch more regular, before ironing the garment, wrap it in a damp cloth and leave it like that for a few hours (or overnight).
