You know how you get to the point where there’s only a few stitches left on your dpn’s, on the crown of a hat; or when you get to the point where you’re ready to finish off an I-cord?
The pattern instructions will tell you to break the yarn, thread it through a darning needle, then slip the remaining stitches onto the darning needle.
I’ve done this many, many times, but never knew if I was doing it right. Does it make any difference which end of the stitches you begin with, to slip them onto the needle? I mean, do you slip the needle into the stitches starting at the end where the working yarn is, or do you go to the other end, or does it even matter?
