I just found the best description of doing the jogless join (with very clear pictures and everything):
BTW - this fellow Seattlelite's blog is wonderful (both hilarious and helpful!)
Thank you! I've saved her instructions...very clear... and also copied the graph on her site... Bill
The jogless join is a wonderful technique to have. Very useful when making multi-coloured socks. It was invented by Meg Swansen. Too bad the blogger didn't give credit where credit was due.
I'm working on a striped hat on circulars - one round white, one round red. I tried the jogless join technique on the first few rows - this doesn't seem to work - looks like it's just inverting the colors. Maybe this looks better once cast off/blocked?
Or is this a technique better used when doing more than a single row of the new color?
Hey, I'm new to stripes. :-)
I'll stop after this row. Honest.
