How to avoid getting a large stitch when changing thread

Tags: good to know,

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 Snow in the video.

Parfait et si simple, merci! Vos vidéos sont impeccables. (Un gros fil sur de grosses aiguilles et un fond neutre, toutes les mailles sont très lisibles.)
