Since I find Suzanne Bryan’s (Knitting with Suzanne Bryan on Ravelry) knitting techniques videos very useful and refer to them a lot, I want to share this excellent one on avoiding holes at the underarm when picking up stitches to begin knitting the sleeves. I’ve found myself referring to it a lot recently, so here goes.

It’s not that I don’t pickup extra stitches to avoid holes, but I still find myself having to re-enforce the armholes afterwards. So, this as much for me as it is for your enlightenment because I never seem to remember the stitch orientation 🙂.
