Son's Harry Potter scarf is coming along. Stripes are hard. Really hard. I wish I had a wand or a magic spell to make them look better. I tried lots of fancy ways to get the joins to look right and to eliminate the jogs but the only thing that half worked was to simply cut and join each color change. Weaving in all those ends would be a nightmare so I am doing them as I go.


  1. I am knitting this scarf and having the same problem at the end of the row after a color change. I was hoping you figured out what to do to prevent the stripe from traveling.

    1. Sorry. I didn't find a magic solution. The only good thing is that the ugly part is only on the edge and it's not so noticeable when worn.
