    Love this – do you do the same thing for the remaining rows? (Obviously, I am not an experienced knitter)

    Love this-why didn’t I think of that? lol Do you have an equally easy technique for binding off in the round with leaving a bump?

  4. Lea says:

    That is very nuce and helpfull .As I knit a lot in the round.ther is a way to finish beutifly but not to begin and you showd us the way thanks a lot

    Would this work for changing colors in later rows as well? (add one additional stitch of new color, slip original color over, slip new color over original color stitch, slip new color back over)

    • Johnny Vasquez says:

      I don’t see how that would be of benefit. That seems overly complicated. Changing colors is pretty straight forward. Just start knitting with the new color.

      • Kim C says:

        Except that, when changing colors, there is an obvious ‘bump’ up in the row which is accentuated by the changing of colors. I was thinking (or wondering) if the technique might help provide an invisible color change..or at least a less obvious one.

        Thanks bunches for the quick replies, help and great technique to try out.

    Also, do you have to use long tail cast on method in order for it to work , or will any cast on method work as long as it’s for knitting in the round?

    thank you

    • Johnny Vasquez says:

      It will probably work with most cast ons, but it will work better with some than others. I hear this does not look great with a cable cast on, but I have not tried it to confirm that.
