Learn how to finish your hand-knits professionally during the Knitwear Finishing Techniques workshop.
Join me for my How to Knit Lace short course. Learn how to use increases and decreases to create a variety of lace stitch patterns. At the same time you will learn how to follow written instructions and charts for lace knitting.
Learn to knit a variety of cable stitch patterns starting with simple ones and moving on to a fancy braid.
The cable cast-on method is my go-to method for teaching beginners. I like it because a new stitch is formed by moving the yarn in the same way as knitting, which means less for beginners to learn. And this method produces a cast-on edge that is firm and tidy even after knitting rows of stitches.
Links to my hand-knit tutorials for knitting left-handed or knitting right-handed, and crochet tutorials for crocheting left-handed or crocheting right-handed.
The knitted cast-on method is an easy way to cast on stitches. It's not always the best way, so I'm going to show you how to do a knitted cast-on, then tell you when and when not to use it. This tutorial is for knitting left-handed.
The tubular cast-on method for 2x2 rib creates a beautiful edge which rolls from the right to the wrong side. Find out how in this photo tutorial, for left-handed knitters.
