Join-as-you-go-knit-vertical-stripes

These videos will help you to make knit stripes one at a time, connecting them to each other as they are knit. The typed directions are below the video. If you use this technique in your own pattern and have learned it here, please link back to this post and give me credit for having taught it to you. You may use my typed directions as well, again as long as you give me credit and provide a link back to this post. Thank you!

Edited to add: Please be aware that although I did come up with this technique on my own when trying to solve my own little design dilemma, I am well aware that if I can come up with it, so can someone else. I am sure this technique has been around long before me, as knitters are a creative bunch! I just ask that if you use my words (which are mine) you give me credit for them.

*Please note these videos were updated on 1/29/14 with an improved technique.

Connecting a stripe at the end of a knit side row:

All rows of the piece you are joining to must be started with a slip stitch, this will leave a loop on the edge of your work for every 2 rows. This technique will not work if you do not start all rows with a slip st.

Make row as your pattern indicates until 2 sts remain, k1, slip last st knit wise, knit into the loops at the edge of the piece you are joining into, pass slipped stitch over.

Next row, slip first stitch purl wise, p1, work remaining row as your pattern indicates.

Repeat these 2 rows.

This technique can be used as an alternate way to join the skirt panels on my Kat Coat pattern.
