How to use a marking thread (MT)

In this DROPS video we show how to place and use a marking thread (MT).

It’s often a good idea to use a marking thread to mark where to make inc, or dec, the start of the round or the sides when working in the round on double pointed needles or circular needles etc.
You can let the thread follow your work and then just pull it out afterward. In our video we are inc 1 st each side of the marking thread.
