Knitting Tutorial: How to slip a stitch

Posted in knitting, video

One of the most common questions I have had from knitters just starting out is how do you slip a stitch in your knitting.

It seems straight forward and it is. As long as you make sure to slip it properly.

Watch my new YouTube tutorial to see how to slip a stitch without twisting it. And also how to twist it if you want to.

Produced in super slow motion. Enjoy.

The purl stitch – video tutorial

Posted in knitting, video

I gave you the knit stitch tutorial yesterday. But, without the purl stitch you won’t be stocking stitching. So here it is. I have made parts of this video slow motion so that you can clearly see how to make the purl stitch. Most commonly used on the wrong side of stocking stitch, the purl stitch is also used in the ever popular moss stitch.

The knit stitch – video tutorial

Posted in knitting, video

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

Intarsia knitting in garter tutorial

Posted in knitting, video

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.
