Helix Knitting is a fun and simple technique for knitting single row stripes in the round with many colors! It not only creates jogless knitting, but you don’t even have to worry about carrying up the various yarns as you go. Check out our video tutorial below for a step-by-step explanation of this technique!

Check out our free Helix Tube Scarf pattern to give helix knitting a try! Or if you want to explore this technique on your own, use any number of yarns and make sure you cast on a multiple of that number. In order to determine your pattern, you will divide the cast-on number by the number of colors, and you will knit that number stitches for each color in each round. For example, if you have 9 yarns and you decide to cast on 63 stitches, each round you would knit each color for 7 stitches because 63 divided by 9 is 7. Let us know if you have any questions… We’d be happy to help!
