I love knitting in the round – it’s seamless, it’s knit only, and it makes great beanies and gloves.
But stripes! Stripes can be a problem.
So here’s a quick tutorial on how to knit without ‘jogs’ or jumps in the round.
- Knit one row in new colour
2. At the end of the row, pick up the stitch of the old colour and put it up on the needle
3,. K these two together.
4. Continue as normal.
This is very useful for items like my Dr Seuss beanie! As you can see below, this is pretty much seamless and creates a very smooth transition.
