YOU ASKED DEB­BIE BLISS…

HOLE LOT OF TROU­BLE

Simply Knitting - - Ask The Experts -

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.
