Help! I'm Slipping/Photo Added
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hello everyone, Iím in need of your expertise. When I slip a stitch, it leaves a big hole in the fabric. How can I slip the stitch without making the big hole? :??:shrug::??:think::think::shrug:

I've never had it leave a hole. How are you slipping? Can you share a photo of the problem?

Are you slipping it OFF the needles or moving it from one needle to the next?

It sounds like you may be dropping the stitch not slipping it.

Part of the problem could also be because you are tugging the stitch to hard as you change needles, thus tightening the stitches on either side and elongating the one you are slipping.

Agree with the above posts -- sounds like you may be slipping the stitch off the needle altogether, instead of slipping it on to the needle. I haven't ever had a problem with slipped stitches leaving a hole. :??

I'll post a picture. When I slip the stitch, I'm just moving the stitch from the left needle to the right. Should this leave a hole. :shrug:

I can't imagine how, a reasonably close-up photo in good ficus would be a big help, we could probably advise much better if you could post one

It shouldn't leave a hole, unless you are also accidentally creating a yarn over at the same time. :?

That make sense. HOW are you slipping it? If you are slipping as if to purl with the yarn forward could you be forgetting to move the yarn back and therefore creating a YO?:??
