What is a turning stitch in knitting?

There are two uses for turning. The most common use is to divide the knitting to work the pieces separately (e.g. the front neck of a jumper). When instructed to turn, simply turn the knitting around by swapping each needle to the other hand, ready to work back in the other direction (this will be the next row).

Why do you wrap and turn in knitting?

Basically, a Short Row is just that: a row that you don’t knit to the end of the needle.

This simple method prevents holes along the Short Rows and works well with many different stitch patterns.
