Join without twisting ... A Fool-Proof Method
How many times have you seen this phrase in a pattern for knitting in the round? "Join without twisting ...". Seems straight-forward enough, right? You probably heed the advice to check, and then re-check once more, to make sure stitches are not twisted before joining into your round.
I have to admit that I have goofed more than once. I don't like to waste time on goofing, darn it. When there are relatively few stitches, at least it's not too big of a deal to rip and start over.
But what about when there are LOTS of stitches? If you are like me, you want to avoid mishaps after investing much time in casting on and knitting a few rounds, only to then discover a problem despite your best efforts to avoid a twist.
So I've developed a short step-by-step tutorial for a foolproof method (assuming you follow the steps, lol) to join without twisting when there are lots and lots of stitches.
I hope this method helps you get off to a good start on projects that may have challenged you to "join without twisting ...". Let me know how it goes!
