Video: Jogless Stripes while Crocheting in the Round

I've received a few requests for clarification regarding the jogless stripes tutorial that I made a while back, so, here are a couple of videos demonstrating the technique.

If you would like to check out the original tutorial, it's available here:

Pattern: Cow Tipping!

It's Saturday night and you're bored. We've all been there: your friends have tried to float idea after idea, but nothing really seems to appeal. Then, in desperation, someone says, "let's go cow tipping!" and you have a brief chuckle.
