YOU ASKED DEBBIE BLISS…
HOLE LOT OF TROUBLE
Q Could you tell me how to avoid holes when turning? When I’m working a collar and I slip the stitch on turning I often create an unsightly gap.
Penny, via email
Wrap the slip stitch rather than simply move it from one needle to another. Before you knit it, bring the yarn to the front, slip the stitch, take the yarn to the back, turn your knitting and slip the stitch you’ve just wrapped. This will leave you with no hole and a neat finish.
