Notes

Fun little project to try out the yarn and see all the colors. Purchased as a kit from the Hudson + West site. Love it.

Jogless stripes: I don’t think you’ll be able to spot the beginning of the color changes very easily, see last photo. There are many ways to knit jogless stripes in the round, but the method I use is the easiest and it works perfectly each time:

  1. Add the new color and knit the row.
  2. When you come to the second round, slip the first stitch as if to purl with the yarn in back. Knit the remaining stitches.
  3. On the third round, knit as usual, but on the first stitch, give both the new yarn and previous yarn a little tug or two to line them up.

This method works best for stripes that are 3 or more rows wide. All jogless methods work best on wool and not as well on cotton and linen.
