Remember when I designed Lolly Pod I said that this was the spring of babies? Well, some friends of mine just had a little girl and I made them this version of Lolly Pod for her to snuggle in:
I had bits of Spud and Chloe Fine in Calypso, Lipstick and Red Hot, and decided that a stripey version of Lolly Pod was just the thing to welcome this wee one into the world. Since it was the second Lolly Pod I made I decided to learn how to work jogless stripes just to make the project a bit more interesting to me!
I ended up loving the ease of working Barber Pole Stripes as described in this post by Grumperina. The technique was crazy easy AND fun... you have to try it some day! I worked with stripes with three colors instead of the four she sued in her tutorial and worked a third of the stitches for each color. Stripes make me happy! I also really enjoyed this article on knitting jogless stripes if you want to read about it further.
