How to pick up and knit stitches in knitting:
Socks patterns and mitten patterns both call for you to pick up stitches.
Top-down socks have a heel flap which usually has a slipped-stitch edge that you need to pick up into, whereas mitten thumbs have a raw edge.
Couldn’t Do It Until This Video
Thank you for this video. I have been trying to figure out from books and other videos (where folks are knitting waaaay too fast and the camera is far too far away) how to pick up and knit something "using the same dpn" or the "same needle"- just could not figure it out – until this video.
