grafting
Just completed my first pair of socks done on dpn's. Of course I started over about 8 times. Enjoyed the journey. How do I do the last 2 stitches left on the needles at the end of grafting? Keep getting a loop. Thanks

Hi and welcome to KH!!

What I do is go ahead and work the first st, leave it on the needle, work the last st, and then remove them at the same time. I pull it snug and most of the time this will take care of the loop.

When I first started knitting socks I had the same problem and tacked the little loop down on the first couple or so
