 I had a little ball of hand spun yarn in gray
 and another little one of charcoal color 
so I decided to put them to work together!
 I wanted to try the 'no jog color striping' method.
It takes a bit of forethought to get the tension even
but it worked!
 The thing is that is moves the first stitch of the row over every time so it is not a good technique for colorwork chart knitting obviously
but for hats it worked great!
If you look closely, you can see a diagonal line of stitches.
This is what I mean when I said you need to work at keeping the tension even.
After blocking, the stitches were invisible and the hat, in superwash hand spun,
 is ready for the donation pile!


  1. Cute! You're going to have a huge pile in no time.

  2. Good for you! Jogless! I want to accomplish that some day!!! Your charity knittting is so lovely

  3. Great-looking hat! Well done. I love using the helical striping technique, too.
