Oh. I forgot about this. Thanks for the reminder. I'll use it on the next one.

I love the randomness of this. It is beautiful.

Agreed!
Thanks for all your thoughts on this. I think none of likes to rip out and redo if we can avoid it. I'll continue as I started and make increasingly larger stripes in the middle and smaller ones on the ends. The next afghan will have mostly wide stripes.

I think this might be the way to go. I was dreading undoing it so this is a good compromise. Thanks. ]It’s very pretty as it is, but I would hate to keep changing colors so often. It of course up to you, you could make increasingly wider stripes then go back to narrow stripes again at the end.[/quote]

I started this afghan, https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/make-a-long-story-short, a few weeks ago and enjoy using up my stash. It is wonderfully mindless TV watching knitting. The problem as there is more length to it is that I now think it would be more effective if I made wider stripes rather than changing colors every few rows. So should I undo it and start over or continue on? Thanks for your opinion.

I hate to be the lone negative but my eye finds the stripes paired with the busy pattern to be too much. I would make stripes to use the available yarn but make the sweater in a more plain or simple pattern. Whichever you decide, your gift will be gratefully received.

I'm sorry, I didn't know what these beautiful things were for. I didn't mean to be stupid.

They actually would work well as you said. Not stupid at all. Some of our best ideas have jumped off from other ideas.

KP and Ravelry are the right hand and left hand of knitting for me. I need both to make it work. Ravelry is the go to for finding and keeping track of patterns. The information left by those who have already made the object I am considering is invaluable. I do keep track of most of my projects there and it is reassuring to see how much I have accomplished. Knitting can be a slow process so it is good to sometimes see the "body of work" all in one place.
KP is the social place where I learn so much from others. After 50+ years of knitting, I thought I knew quite a lot but I really don't. KP is like being able to run next door to a knitting friend to solve problems in short order. In my opinion, KP and Ravelry are like that old song about Love and Marriage. You can't have one without the other.
Great question by the way.

You responded nicely. I think most people have no idea what goes in to even simple knitting projects. Their ignorance should not become your problem.

The way you describe is just like the directions in the pattern. Thanks for your information.

I have made hundreds of pairs of mittens using a pattern I developed from other patterns. It is a grid of different sizes and I often match them up with hats for charity giving. I like having the various sizes at hand and sometimes make the size based on how much yarn I have available. You are welcome to use it if it meets your needs. They can either be knitted in stockinette stitch or waffle weave for extra warmth. My boys used the waffle weave mitts as chopper liners.

Perfection!

You have stated my question just right. Sometimes assumptions are right. LOL

Very good video!

Since the question was about using Japanese short rows apparently instead of the method called for in the pattern I thought the one I linked to might help understand how to change from one style to the other. Of course there was an assumption that the pattern calls for short rows and we know about assumptions. Hopefully more info will be given so if the question hasn't been answered we can keep trying.
