Today's tutorial is on Knit Jogless Stripes. This super simple technique eliminates jogs in your color change at the beginning of the round when knitting in the round.
When you start a round with a new color, what happens is you end the round higher than where you started so it doesn't like up very well. The transition from the color change isn't smooth.
All you need to do to fix this is:
Knit the first round of the new color as you would normally.
On the 2nd round though, you want to SLIP the first stitch purl-wise (as if to purl) and not actually knit this stitch. Then you can knit the rest of the stitches as you would normally.
What this does is pull the stitch up so it doesn't have the jog. If you look carefully at the first stitch of the color changes, you're 1 stitch short (which I explain in the video).
