Anthropologie Capelet

The now famous Anthropologie capelet pattern says to “move all the stitches from the first to second marker onto scrap yarn”, etc. Could I just put them on a stitch holder instead? Dumb question but I thought maybe there was some reason not to use a stitch holder. :shrug:

I think you could use a stitch holder, as long as it’s not too short. These stitches are going to curve a little becaus they’re for the sleeves. I think.


Sometimes the stitch holder gets in the way, especially if you need to join two sides of the knitting, as in a raglan.

That’s where a longer stitch holder, one that’s kind of like a safety pin, might be okay. You can sorta bunch your stiches together.
