Holding Position in tuck rib

Posted on

Has anyone got a diagram of this please? I am not sure how to cope with the tuck stitches when the needles are in holding position. This is for a lovely Nina Miklin cardigan. Many thanks Gilly

Hi Gill

There are a couple of things you can do.

On the row before you put the needles in holding position bring those needles which will be put to hold to upper working position so that they will knit their stitches. Then you will not be putting needles with multiple loops into holding position.

Alternatively you can transfer the stitches to the bed which is knitting stocking stitch and put those needles in holding position.

I hope this helps solve your problem

Sue.
