Notes

Using the random stripe generator so I don’t have to think too hard!

Jogless stripes
Update - I tried the jogless stripes for a bit, and they weren’t working (left side of the Instagram photo). I’ve since switched to cutting the yarn with each color change and working each row normally, weaving in ends as I go (right side of the Instagram photo). There’s a jog, but I don’t mind. At least the fabric is smoother with each transition, and there’s no puckering from carrying the unused yarn up the side.

Where there is 1x1 ribbing, I’m doing twisted rib instead. (My 1x1 rib looks like crap.)

Swatch:
Before washing,
6.5 sts = 1” on size 3; 8.75 rows = 1” on size 3
6 sts = 1” on size 4; 8.25 rows = 1” on size 4

After washing,
6.25 sts = 1” on size 3, 8 rows = 1” on size 3
5.75 sts = 1” on size 4, 7.75 rows = 1” on size 4

Size 4 wins! Swatch is in Nerrivik colorway only.

Love how Caper Sock feels after washing!
