      I don’t wrap one colour around the other, it just makes a tangled mess. I carry one colour in each hand. My floats are no more than 4 stitches, otherwise it seems to pucker. And I stretch out the stitches before I move to the next colour, bunched up stitches make for short floats. That’s all there is too it.
