Knitting Tips and Techniques

I hope you find these links as helpful as I do.

My motivation for this post was to make the on-line references I use most often accessible from the blog so I don't have to rely on bookmarks. I've created a link to this page in the sidebar.

A hearty "thank you" to all the information owners for sharing.

Knitting Tips and TechniquesCast-on
  • Sewn Cast-off: stretchy and good for toe-up socks.
  • Tubular cast-off: my favorite for toe-up socks, particularly good for 1x1 rib
  • Before cutting the yarn and threading the darning needle, I set up the tubular cast-off by knitting 2 full rounds of tubular knitting.
    Round 1, part A: *k1, sl1 wyif* all the way around, p last st
    Round 1, part B: *sl1 wyib, p1* all the way around
    Round 2, part A: *k1, sl1 wyif* all the way around, p last st
    Round 2, part B: *sl1 wyib, p1* all the way around

  • Great guide for beginners, as well as a review article for experienced knitters. My daughter wants to learn how to knit, or at least the basics, so thank you for compiling these instructions and for saving me the time to look for a book about knitting. I've been busy lately learning how to use the hand carder I got from my brother as a birthday gift. I also want to learn how to use those weaving looms since we have one here that has not been used ever since my in-laws moved out.
