Invisible stranding, also called Ladderback Jacquard, is a common machine knitting technique used to keep floats in stranded (jacquard) knitting secured on the wrong side of the fabric. Hand knitters can also use invisible stranding to prevent caught stitches from showing on the right side. Learn how using a simple hat pattern in two colors.
