Tutorial: Crocheted Jogless Stripes


A common problem in amigurumi: you want to crochet something striped, but there's this funky looking stairstep "seam" running diagonally where you change colors. How do you get rid of that!?


EDIT: I've also put together a pair of videos showing this technique in action. You can view them here:

example of crocheted stripes without the jogless method


The easy answer would be to just hide the seam in the back or somewhere else out of notice, but let's say that this option won't work for you, or that you're making a long, spindly striped piece where the seam can't really be hidden. Luckily, I have another solution for you: the crocheted jogless stripe!
