Graft together the 24 stitches on the needle (optional: bind off and sew the seam together) and sew together the seam at the start of the work (optional: graft it together if you used a provisional cast-on).

This problem can be generalized slightly to consider nw + 2 or nw − 2 total stitches, and then nw + k or nw − k total stitches. Students can first recognize that the type of stripe will not change, and then notice that the apparent slope of the stripes will decrease as k increases. This is a good opportunity to discuss the ideas underlying slope. For example, steeper slopes have greater vertical change than horizontal change. The vertical change can be approximated by the many overlapping rows of stitches stacked atop each other within a stripe, and the horizontal change can be approximated by the width w of each stripe.

Again, we start with the simplest example, of two colors and height-two stripes. For progressing stripes, we have four strands and the generating word 11233(123)31223(123)3. For precessing stripes, we have six strands and the generating word 11233455(12345)51223445(12345)5. These are both rather ugly, and no amount of braid-word relation manipulation appears to simplify either of them. 3 for how to knit generalized helix stripes of any height with any number of colors, we can derive the generalized generating braid word and see that it depends on the number of colors n and the number of strands s used for each color (rather than on n and the height h).
