Tuck

Tuck, written tuck D N CS in knitout, adds a loop of yarn(s) from the carrier set CS in direction D onto any existing loops on needle N.

It is used to create new loops when casting on or increasing; in intarsia, short rows, and fairisle to attach yarns; in tuck laces to create stylish textures; and to secure yarn temporarily during bind offs.
