I am having a problem with loose stitches between needles on my socks. I usually use 1 circular needle and when I split the stitches between knit stitches it isn’t a problem. I am currently doing a pattern that is primarily purl stitches with a small cable twist. The two sides where I split between the needles is an obvious “ladder”. Is there anything I can do to avoid this, or should I revert to 4 double points for this sock? Please help.
