Did I Mess Up?

I might have mentioned that I am knitting hats for the Charmed Knits knit-along. I got a late start on my knitting for the project, but I hope to make up for that once school lets out (yes, I am counting the days!) However, there seems to be a bump in the road:


Is this normal, or did I make a mistake somewhere? I have knitted hats in the round before, but I've never added stripes. Does this have to be frogged? Please say, "no." Should I just keep knitting along and hope the recipient will just hide this in the back? I'd actually feel funny giving this away as is, if I made a mistake that can be corrected. Any ideas?

Totally normal. It's called a jog. There are ways to minimize them...search for jogless jogs.

Yep - normal.... use it as the back seam if it doesn't bother you too much.

Hi Hapagirl--Thank you very much for your yesterday's post with the link to my site--TECHknitting.blogspot.com. If you go to that site and search "jogless stripes" you will find a new and simple method for avoiding this problem.

Oooh! I always get them too. Annoying, isn't it? I'll have to do the same search.
