I am working on a jumper using DPN's; I now remember why I always avoided them in the past. But, it's not an option with this project so I have to persevere. This is my method: I knit to the end of the needle, knit the two stitches from the next needle and then change over to the empty needle to continue to knit. This is repeated for each needle so that I won't have a ladder. However, I've developed another situation: a diagonal row of loose stitches (I guess it's in place of the ladder). It looks awful and I'm at a loss as to how to prevent them. I knit the first stitch tightly against the last needle and I'm knitting the two first stitches onto the last needle as well. I have tried 4, 5, 6 needles and that hasn't changed anything as far as I can see. I'm wondering if this is just a result of working on DPN's and it will all come out in the wash when blocking?
Any advice offered will be greatly appreciated. Cheers! Jesse
