Just Say No to the YO: A Tip for Knitting in the Round

How to avoid extra stitches at the needle change when knitting in the round
No matter what type of needles you use for small circumference projects (socks, mittens, gloves...), it's really easy to get an extra stitch at the needle change. It's a problem that almost every sock knitter has faced at some point. But why does it happen?

Before You Begin

Most often, that extra stitch is caused by inadvertently creating a yarn over (YO) when you begin working on a new needle. Of course, you need to pay attention to your work, so it doesn't happen, but it can also be helpful to remind yourself to "just say no to the YO".
