View Full Version : Knitting Socks on Circular

I'm learning to knit socks on 2 circular. I'm having trouble with the joining of each row, my stitches are a little loose.
Any suggestions? :lol:

You mean when you start a new row, the stitches in between are loose? When you do your first stitch on the needle, pull it tight and keep it tight when you do the next few stitches...that always works for me.

I give a tug to the 2nd and 3rd sts when I transfer from needle to needle ;)

Unfortunately, that is a pretty common problem. The tightening of the first couple of sts helps and the little "ladder" that some people get usually goes away after washing/blocking.
