that 2nd stitch…

do you know about the 2nd stitch?

so when you are working in magic loop or on dpns, ladders appear between the needles.

dpn-laddering

wanna know how to avoid these ladders?

it’s all in the 2nd stitch.

as you move from one needle to the other, knit the 1st stitch on the new needles just as you would any other time. then when you enter the 2nd stitch give the working yarn a little extra tug!

voila!!! snug and tight!

problem solved!

happy knitting!
