Jogless stripes

Hello!

This is going to be a very short post.  I need advices. 

I'm knitting some Tiny Pants.  So cute ;-)

I have to experiment with methods for jogless stripes in the round.  My stripes are only 2 rows.  I tried one method that consist in knitting the first stitch of the previous row along with the first stitch of the row I start when I knit the second row in the same color.  It does not look good at all.

Any suggestion?  What method do you use?

I hope you are having a great summer so far!  Happy knitting!

Hm, I think I knit jogless stripes the same way you described. I followed this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PjA0IR0MOU

I'm sorry I can't help you more!

I wish I could help I have never made jogless stripes, how about going to a forum on Ravelry to find out?

i use the Traveling Jogless Stripes method. TechKnitter details it here http://techknitting.blogspot.nl/2007/01/jogless-stripes.html. Hope this helps!

Since I am a complete failure at perfecting the jogless stripe, instead I will just say hi! :)

I use Meg Swanson's method (googleable if this doesn't make sense)

Knit 1 round of second color. When you get back to the first stitch of the second color pick up the stitch directly below (will be first color). Basically you have just put your left needle right into the middle of that stitch. Simply knit into it like the stitch above doesn't exist, then carry on as normal. Once you get back to swapping to the first color - repeat the process. This will move your 'first stitch' one stitch to the left.

I have to re-experiment every time I try to stripe. I have success and less than success, as in the case with the Christopher hat, which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. Keep us posted on your findings!

Wish I could help.... My jogless stripes never went well, so the "solution" I found was to avoid stripes in the round...which is completly silly as I love stripes. :p
