Twice now I've worked with Wayuki's "Sweater Bearies" pattern (found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=353505.0 ), which I love. The only problem is, I don't understand how to join the rounds neatly.

She mentions using a slip stitch and then chaining one, but I always end up with an extra stitch at the end of my round. I read the Lion Brand website's tutorial for this, too, and I still mess it up. Where am I going wrong with this? Thanks for any help!

Don't count the slip stitch as a stitch, and don't make a new stitch into it.  I've found it's a bit easier to ignore the slip stitch if I tug the yarn after I make it so that it gets really really small and utterly impossible to work into anyway.

Thanks so much. At first I was counting the slipstitch as the first stitch of the round.
