How to avoid getting a large stitch when changing thread

In this DROPS video we show one way how to avoid getting a large first and last stitch when changing thread. Tie the new thread into the old thread, but do not tie it with a knot but with a loop. Tighten the loop and push it to the knitting piece. Now continue working with the new thread, knit a few rounds and then pull on the loop to loosen it. Then you will get a nice transition where it changes thread. Fasten the threads as usual when the work is done.

We use the yarn DROPS Eskimo in the video.
