Stranded knitting - how to catch the float

I’ve never really done fair isle or 2 color stranded knitting before and I’m starting a sock pattern that uses it. I’ve watch Amy’s video on stranded knitting and I’m OK with the 2 color part.

Some of my floats will be 5-7 stitches long and the videos here don’t show catching the float. I can’t seem to do it without tripping over my fingers and turning the inside into a tangled mess.

Any suggestions? Any other videos out there that demonstrate it?


The video here will show you how.

thanks, Jan, that’s perfect. that 4th stitch is going to take some practice!
