Changing colors in the round?

I’m working on Christmas stockings for my family - I’m wondering what is the best way to change colors when working in the round? I use dpns. I want to make ongoing stripes, not just a one time color change.


Over at TechKnitting they have an article on jogless stripes. I have not tried it but it sounds ok.

Yes, check techknitting for the jogless jog. To start a new color you just start knitting with it. If you’re changing colors every few rows then you can carry the unused color up the inside of the work so you don’t have so many ends to weave it.

the joggless jog takes practice a bit but it works. If you just change in the same spot without other remedies the sprial action will be visible.
