STRIPES IN THE ROUND If you have never knit stripes, or have never been satisfied with how you have been knitting them, you might find these basic tips helpful. (By the way, this isn't a tutorial on the "Jogless Jog", which is a way of eliminating the imperfect way stripes meet at the end of the round. Maybe another time!) http://www.purlbee.com/knitting-tutorials-working-rnd/2013/2/19/stripes-in-the-round.html
Smooth (jogless) Bind Off in the Round If you bind off (cast off) in the round, usually you end up with a bump at the last cast-off stitch to minimize the transition and have a smoother joint. Bind (cast) off stitches using preferred method until 1 stitch remains on left on the right-hand needle.
