Jogless Jog

When knitting in the round new colours are joined as normal but as you are working in a spiral, the last stitch is higher than the first, which leads to a step in the colour pattern. This is particularly noticeable in stripes. Knitting designer Meg Swansen has come up with a great way to avoid this step using a technique which she calls the Jogless Jog.

  • Jogless Jog - Step 1

    Step 1

    Join in a new colour and knit to the end of the round. Still using needle four as your RH needle, lift up the loop of the first stitch of the previous round and place it on the LH needle.

  • Jogless Jog - Step 2

    Step 2

    Knit this loop together with the first stitch of the new round. This is now the last stitch of the round. Pick up your spare needle and continue knitting as normal.
