To get the most out of these boards, before posting a topic, we suggest:

Scrolling through past posts to see if your question has already been asked and answered. Postings are in chronological order of the date when the topic was first posted. You can also use the SEARCH function to look for past posts about your question.

If you don't see your question addressed, or if you have additional questions, post a New Topic rather than replying to an existing topic. This will increase the likelihood of getting responses to your specific question. Also, try to describe your specific question in the topic subject line rather than "New Knitter" or "Help."

The more information you can provide in your question, the better the responses.

We hope you enjoy the postings on this board and will come back to share your knowledge with others.

When you add the underarm stitches, are you slipping them on from a holder or are you casting them on?

If you are slipping them on from a holder, unless you have a double point needle holding them, or a holder where you can slip from either direction, make it a two-way slip. Slip them on to another needle and then slip on to your circular needles.

If you are casting on the stitches, try a different cast-on.

Or, since these stitches are under the arm and not particularly noticeable, just leave those purl bumps and tell people they are a design feature.
