I just love knitting in the round. I’ll take every opportunity to avoid seams. I’ve knitted hats, gloves, mittens, bags, toys, and hoodies in the round.
One of the problems of knitting in the round, is knitting with colored stripes. As you go knitting in a spiral, at each color change you end up with a jog (adjacentÂ stitches of different colors) where you can clearly see where each row started. The following video explains a simple technique to fix it.
One of the things you’ll notice with this technique, is that you will have less stitches on the first stitch of each row. For example, in the hat I was knitting I was doing 3 rows gray, 2 black, but where I was applying the technique I had 2 rows gray, 1 black. It’s hardly noticeable, in my opinion… the jogs would be much more noticeable.
