Jogless Stripes in the Round

A few months ago I made this wonderful cowl from a pattern called Stripes to Keep Me Warm, it is an easy pattern, but if you want to make jogless stripes you maybe want to check some videos on youtube and practice by making a swatch or two.

I used Garnstudio DROPS Alpaca and Noro Silk Garden Sock with 4 mm needles, but I would recommend smaller needles to have a tighter fabric. Other than that the cowl is beautiful and warm.

These are the alterations I made over the original pattern:

CO 126 sts. 

Button hole in last garter band of row 5: k2, yo, k2tog, k2.

Next button hole after 14 rows. Rows 19, 33, 49, 65, 79 (first increase in row 81, use twisted yarn over, but not in the plackets). Knit 10 more rows and join plackets, 91. Second increase row 95.
