How to avoid a jog at the beginning of circular knitting

In this DROPS video we show how to create an invisible join when starting your circular knitting and in this way avoid a jog in your work.

Note! Cast on 1 additional stitch than what pattern tells you.

Join, making sure not to twist stitches on row.
Slip 1st stitch on left needle purl-wise over to right needle. Slip the 2nd stitch on right needle over the 1st.

Move the slipped stitch back to left needle. Tighten yarn ends. Place a marker to mark beginning of the round and start knitting.
