3 Colors for casting on, how to do that?
That’s what I was wondering about, after I learned how to do the versions with 2 colors. I started trying out things, and this is what I figured out. It is not that hard, but you really have to pay attention to the order of the colors that you fold over and keep in the middle.

Remember that the middle 2 threads have to go to the left, so it’s a brain exercise and to keep focused, because these threads try to twist and twist around each other 🙂 . Now remember that the blue ones have become the middle threads.
Well, actually, if you are at this point, and you get confused about the order of the yarns, you could look at the order in which the colors lay in your weaving that you already did. Is the last warp thread covered with green? Then you know that the next V-shape has to be pink, so the pink threads should be in the middle. They are the ones that will be brought to the left, so that they will cover the next warp thread.
Push the weaving up like described at the basic steps, first page of this tutorial. You are now ready to weave. Look in the menu for the Tāniko weaving tutorials.
