I was listening to the Knitpicks podcast today and they had a question about those "step ups" you get when you are doing striped knitting in the round (like in a bag or hat). It's always bothered me too, but they had a solution and I didn't understand it. It's apparently Meg Swanson's idea, but it was something about knitting two stitches together, but to me, it seems if you do that, you'd lose a stitch every color change which doesn't make sense. Unless you're knitting the stitch below??? Does anyone know what I'm talking about or have a better explanation or solution? I'm in the midst of making winter hats and mittens and would like to avoid that this year if I can! Thanks! You guys are great for this stuff!
