This video has taken a little longer to produce than the others as I wanted it to be clear enough for beginners and also avert the most common mistake made at the start of a row. If you gave up knitting because you kept accidentally increasing when you were trying to knit a straight scarf, you need to watch this video. Pass it on to your any friends who have had this same, very common, problem. Now for the purl stitch video. Pat

The most commonly forgotten knitting technique is how to cast on. The second most common is how to cast off. I have just finished production of the knitting cast on video tutorial. This is the most basic cast on technique as it is almost the same as working the knit stitch apart from the little twist at the end.. Watch the short video below to see how it is done. Now to start production of the cast off video tutorial. I hope you are all having a good weekend. Pat
The days are now full of sunshine in Kyneton but the mornings are still chilly. The frosty mornings have seen me revisit a trusty old wrist warmer pattern I designed a few years. I have knitted these in grey and pink before but thought this lovely tangerine colour in the Marta’s Yarns Metro DK range would be a cheerful addition to my collection of mitts. These also look great worn with the palm section on the top of your hand and inside out too.
I am currently re-writing the pattern so that the wristwarmers can be knitted either in the round or on straight needles. In the meantime the circular pattern is available for purchase as a Raverly download.
I have just finished a new video tutorial demonstrating the intarsia knitting technique in garter stitch. Intarsia is often worked in stocking stitch but there is a little trick when working on the wrong side of a garter stitch project. Watch the video to see how it is done…
This technique was used in the Tangram Square Blanket design and can be used to make shapes covering larger areas in any knitting project. Enjoy.
Video production is in full swing and I will be uploading a new video almost every day now until the collection is complete. The pdf patterns for sale on this website will all contain links to these tutorials so that, if in doubt, you can click on the link and see how the particular stitch is made.
