I started the french bathing suit for my granddaughter and wasn't paying attention when I added the rows of stripes....now half way through I HATE the way I did the stripes and realize there was a better way....
SHOULD I RIP IT OUT...and start over again. My basic personality type is perfectionist. I know I am NOT going to be happy with this work...I have tried everything to going over certain stitches...ripping back a few rows, etc. I think the only way I will be happy is to rip it all the way out before the stripes begin and just start over....I am talking about 10 inches of knitting in the round. ......
I'd frog and redo it too. Somehow it's easier to redo the whole thing, it's a new project almost, than to try to correct mistakes like that. I frogged a project recently for similar reasons. Now I can start afresh instead of coping with the mistakes. The decision to do it is worse than the frogging, rewinding the yarn, and starting over again IME.
Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper

I have the suit back on the needles and I THINK I am happy with stripe joins....but only have one done.....I need a few more to make sure I have this technique down for the jogless join. I was able to salvage the bottom section so all was not lost. I AM much happier now when I pick it up!
