Your question: What is a gap in knitting?

You get a gap or a jog where the first stitch of your cast on edge seems to hang off independently. This is pretty unsightly. It makes you feel like your knitting isn’t as professional as other people’s. But it’s not you, it’s the knitting.

Why are there gaps in my knitting?

Usually, it happens in stitch patterns that have both knits and purls in the same row. The hole appears when you bring the yarn to the front of the work as if for purling, then realise that the next stitch is a knit according to your pattern, and knit that stitch without moving the yarn to the back of the work.

How do you fix common mistakes in knitting?

Solution: To avoid an accidental yarn over, make sure that when you knit a stitch, the yarn is in the back. When you purl a stitch, make sure the yarn is in front. To fix an accidental yarn over, unknit to the mistake and unwrap the yarn over. Continue knitting as usual.

Can you knit in the round with straight needles?

Because of the “stopper” ends of regular 1-point straight needles, there is really no way to use them to knit in the round. Try to avoid using the rubber temporary needle ends as much as possible. Their weight can make your knitting uneven.
