Diagonal ladder
I'm knitting a hat and am halfway through it. I'm doing it on magic loop (4mm circular needles).

To avoid ladders, before I move the sts to the free needle and continue knitting, I first transfer 2 sts, knit them, and then continue. I'm not sure it's clear, but basically I'm knitting 2 sts from the other needle before going on (like I'd do with DPNs).

But, now there's an issue: I can clearly see this line (a ladder) going up the whole work, in diagonal (following the 2 sts I moved before). It's not THAT visible, but it's deep enough to be spotted.

What do I do???
