How to join in the round for added strength

Hi,

What are some of your tips and techniques for joining in the round that adds extra strength at the join?

Thank you,
Pearl

I CO an extra stitch, then slip the first stitch when joining, work the first round and knit or purl the last stitch together with the slipped one. Some people swap the first and last stitches when they join, crossing them over each other.

Thank you suzeeq. Im going to give that a try. :thumbsup:

Im working on a sweater, :knitting: and had it joined, after a few rounds the join was loose and didnt look very good either.

I love all the smilies this sight has :mrgreen:
