Craftsy Premium: Let’s Knit Stripes!

Join Jen Lucas for a Premium member LIVE tutorial on how to make a striped hat and cowl set. Knitting stripes is a great way to use leftover yarn and is just plain fun. When knitting stripes in a ribbing pattern, like 2×2 ribbing (that’s k2, p2 – or knit two stitches, purl two stitches), you can get little “flecks” of color from the previous color popping through on your purl stitches on the Right Side of the fabric. While this certainly isn’t a problem, and projects still look great, you can eliminate this and get super crisp stripes in your ribbing. The solution? Knit all the stitches on the first row of your color change (when this row is going to be a Right Side).

    I don’t seem to be able to get any volume. I’ve turned it up all the way both on the video and on my laptop. I’m really interested to listen to the part about avoiding jogs.

    The video stopped at the “no jog” point when adding the green yarn and beginning the decrease.
