Pick Ups!

A couple of posts ago, we learnt all about Wrap & Turns which are super good when dealing with socks and anything else that requires a gentle curve, HOWEVER ….. the eagle eyed amongst us will notice that once you’ve completed the W&T’s there are tiny gaps between the stitches. To rectify this, we need to pick up the stitches and make them ‘live’ again. Here’s how  …..

Picking Up Knit Side 

  1. With the right hand needle (working from front to back), pick up the wrap 
  2. Immediately after, insert the right hand needle into the wrapped stitch as if to knit
  3. Knit both the wrap and the stitch together.

Picking Up Purl Side 

  1. Insert the right hand needle into the wrap from back to front
  2. Using the right hand needle, lift the wrap up and over the wrapped stitch on the left hand needle
  3. Purl both the wrap and the stitch together.
