I’ve been reading through all the threads on tightening loose stitches, but they all seem to be about a stitch on the end or beginning of a row, so apologies if this has already been answered - just point me in the right direction. I’m knitting socks on Magic Loop and discovered I had a couple of baggy stitches several rows back. I thought I could just take up the slack and continue pulling it through each stitch until I get back to where I am, but it seems to take forever. Is there an easier way to take care of a big loop hanging on the inside?
I don’t think it’s possible to fix it at that point unfortunately. :shrug:
You might try duplicate stitch–I’ve used it a few times for stitches that don’t quite look right, and it helps a lot. Go to Amy’s video here, go to “Duplicate Stitch Join,” and wait for the part of the video where she demonstrates weaving in ends using duplicate stitch. That basically is what you’d do to ‘tighten’ those loose stitches except you’ll be using a separate piece of yarn.
Duplicate stitch is also great for decorating a piece of knitting. You can use yarn or embroidery floss.
