Underarm Gap

Mind the gap! Underarm gap is a fact of knitting life. We’ll talk about it more in this lesson. Watch the video overview, and then – instead of a printable – watch the second video showing you how I close the gap.

A note: Underarm gap doesn’t only happen in seamless sweaters. It can happen any time we stress or stretch the stitches, whether it’s to pick up to knit a sleeve or when attaching a sleeve that was knit separately. However the gap might happen, you can quickly and easily close it with a darning needle and thread.
