What is your favorite method for joining to work in the round?? Is there one that's better than the others? I've always just started knitting and pullling the working yarn tight after the first stitch.
I found this video on YouTube that shows how someone starts her knitting in the round:
But when I tried it, I ended up with 1 less stitch when I knit around to my marker. I am making a poncho and cast on 60 sts for K3, P2 ribbing. Should I cast on 61 instead?? Or is there a better way to join??
