I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Hufflepuff Scarf Jogless Color Change

This technique calls for the color change to be done in a certain way. Here I am ready for the color change.

What you do in the color change is you actually slip the stitch purlwise. To slip a stitch purlwise (sl 1 purlwise) Insert the right-hand needle into the front of the next stitch on the left-hand needle from right to left then slip the stitch from the left-hand needle onto the right-hand needle without knitting it.

I got the technique from this Blog It is called the Jogless Travelling Stripe Technique and

Here you will see the three different attempts to make a color change jogless.
First Attempt

Second Attempt

This is the Final Attempt. This is the perfect way. I will be folding this scarf in this area anyway, but knowing that i can perform color changing without a jog is incredible. Thanks to the Tutorial I will be able to make hats and more scarfs with jogless stripes. Once you block the Item in question it will be almost flawless. Thanks for stopping by!
