Stripes in the Round – Colour Jog Correction

Stripes in the Round – Colour Jog Correction
Knitting in the round is effectively working a long continuous spiral. Normally this isn’t noticeable, but creates a pronounced step, or jog, when working stripes. The fix for this is worked after the first full round of each colour change. Before knitting the first stitch of the next round, insert the right tip into the stitch directly below and lift it up onto the needle. Knit these two stitches together and continue on with the round. This elongates the lower stitch to minimise the effect of the colour jog.
