Something strange happens everytime I make a sock. The V in the last stitch on needles 3 and 1 has a gap in it. (See the photo; I’ve pulled the sock a bit to show the gap.) What’s odd is that this problem never occurs between needles 2 & 3…
The socks end up looking like they have seams, which of course they don’t. I’ve tried tightening that last stitch, even when I move to the next needle, but nothing seems to get rid of the problem entirely.
My question is, how do I get rid of the gap? Is this a natural feature of the hand-knit sock, or am I doing something incorrectly?
Thanks in advance for your help!
