LK202. Securing the Yarn on the Holding Peg

How you can secure the working yarn to the holding peg after wrapping?

Here is how I do it: wrap the yarn around the holding peg once, then make a loop. Twist the loop so the yarn falls behind the loop, place the semi-slip knit (also called half hitch) over the holding peg and pull. That secures the yarn while you knit in the round, yet it is easy to remove after knitting.
