Hot tip: Jogless stripes in knitting

I just learned a new knitting tip from my friend Meaghan, how to have jog-less stripes! 

Whenever I knit stripes in the round I find there's always a little skip and a jump when I transition from one color to the next. Sometimes I pull the last stitch of the previous color a little tighter to help hide this but there is actually a good method for avoiding these jogs and it's easy to do!

I have been trying it on my Easy As ABC baby sweater for the knit along and I thought you might like to try it, too.

Jog-less stripes in knitting. Woohoo!

Here's how it's worked for our sweater. 

Knit as normal to your color change, change to the next color and knit around. On the second round of a color do this: 
Row 2: Sl 1 purlwise (wyib), knit to end. 
Row 3 through the next color change: Knit as normal carrying the other color up the inside.
