REBECCA'S METHOD OF AVOIDING DOG EARS ON GRAFTED TOES

To prevent ears on wedge toes: before you graft, slip the outside stitch on each end of the needle over the stitch next to it.  You will have two fewer stitches on each needle; that is, if you had ten  you will now have eight.  I use a crochet hook to do this.  Graft as usual and you will have no ears, not even on cotton.
