Good Tension Between Knit and Purl Stitches

No loose spots! This is the little trick I use for making sure my tension stays even across a row with both knit and purl stitches.

This video is sponsored by Eucalan, the wool soap I trust for all of my knits – I’ve used this fiber wash for years! Eucalan is available at many retailers, you can learn more and purchase at their website.

The June Cashmere scarf I show in the video can be found here.

The yarn I’m using for demonstration is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky.
The needles I’m using are Knitter’s Pride Dreamz from an interchangeable set.
The straight needles in the video thumbnail photo are Knitter’s Pride Royale.

  1. There’s another technique that works that I’ve used for years. Wind that first purl stitch clockwise. It does leave the stitch mounted incorrectly, but the next time you encounter the stitch, you simply knit or purl through the back loop.

    This is an interesting one – the tug method. I shall have to try it!
