I looked around on the interwebs and on craftster specifically and for some reason couldn't find an answer to my question, so I'm gonna go ahead and post it here.

I'm making this sweater, and after quite a bit of knitting I noticed that I have two little yarn overs way down at the bottom. Now, the minor increases from it haven't affected the sweater at all, but the little holes created from the yarn overs bug the jeebies out of me.

How might I go about closing up the holes? Is there some kind of stitching technique that anyone is savvy to? I plan on blocking the sweater when I'm done, but I feel like if I don't do something a little extra the holes are still gonna be there.

Any advice?

Thanks  Grin

As far as I know, you'd have to drop those two stitches down all the way to the YO and hope that you can wiggle everything to hid the YOs and the run. Sad

Another option would be to kind of duplicate stitch a stitch over the YOs when you're done.  I think this may be a better option Wink

Either way, good luck!

I had a similar thing happen to me, and I just went back and sewed or more like weaved it together with the same colour yarn using a yarn needle.  You could also use a crochet needle to make one faux stitch there.
