Starting today!

I picked out my yarn and I am on my way to my first SBJ. What I want to ask is... if I want to make it with stripes... can I put them anywhere??

  • Absolutely! That's one of the joys of the pattern. All the stripes magically match with no effort on your part.

  • Stripe away. You can have endless fun with stripes in this pattern. Having knitted it a couple of times you learn what the consequence of your striping will be and start being able to "place" the stripes. Do have fun - and post pictures!

  • If you want to be more specific about where to put your stripes, check out this link:

    (You will probably have to copy and paste that address.) It has a section called "placing your stripes." Adrian of the recent gorgeous handspun BSJ posted about this site. It's a great resource for the BSJ.
