Knitting Tip: Easy Way to Close Sleeve Gaps

Top down knitting projects are some of my favorites.  They are pretty much seamless except for a small area where the sleeve stitches are picked up on the underside.  Picking up and joining the sleeves can sometimes leaves a pesky gap.  When I get that gap, here's the easy way I found to close it.

1.  When re-joining the yarn to work the sleeve stitches, leave a longer tail than usual (approximately  6" or so).

2.  Use that tail to work a duplicate stitch or two to close that gap , then fasten off.

Happy Knitting!
