This is a wonderful YouTube video. She shows you how to fix the sts. on the front side. I have a terrible time trying to fix them on the back side when they are on the machine. I think you all will love this. I found the tools on ebay and amazon.

This is not a latch tool. It is a double sided crochet hook. I do not know how to post the Youtube site but just go
to you tube and type in" Fix-A-Stitch all Repairs from Front". It is easier then the latch tool. You really need to take a look.

Thank you. I went to have a look and did find the double crochet at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yU5CILvgEuU
. Very ingenious. But as your post was in the Machine Knitting section, I remembered seeing the other one and that is why I posted. Both would be useful though I always find it a little awkward to pick up knit stitches on the machine. Purl st are easier for me.

Nice YouTube video. Machine knitters use latch tools to pick up stitches where hand knitters probably use crochet hooks, same for the double sided ones. The garter carriages have those double sided latch tools included and with it it is so much easier to pick up stitches when the wrong side faces you in stockinette.
Thanks for putting up the link. I have the metal hooks but find it hard with the latches.
Both tools seem to work the same way. The double latch tool came with Brother Garter Carriages.
Cool tool. Sometimes yes, the latch can get in the way on a seed stitcher. I find it interesting that the inventor of the double ended crochet hook, in her video, does not even promote where to buy it! It would seem that is a necessary part of salesmanship.
Neat video, I have some very old double crochet hooks which is the tool she is using, I believe they were used whe making afghans.
ordered the double ended latch tool ($6) on Ebay...also thinking about the double ended crochet hook - I have better success on the knitting machine with the latch than the crochet hook, but the seed-stitching sounds intriguing, haven't tried it yet!!
