    Three-Needle Bind Off Tutorial

    The three-needle bind off is a method for joining two pieces of knitting that have active stitches on the needles. Unlike the Kitchener Stitch that grafts the two pieces together by weaving another row of stitches, the three-needle bind off creates an actual seam at the join. This adds more stability and structure to your work which is great for places like sweater...

    There are a number of ways to increase the number of stitches you have on your knitting needles.

    Icord Edge Tutorial

    An icord creates a very neat and tidy edge for shawls, collars, sleeves, etc. It is not very elastic, so you’re going to want to use an icord for fixed lengths or wide collars where you don’t need much extra give.

    Chainless Double Crochet Tutorial

    Traditionally, when working flat in crochet each row begins with a chain stitch or set of chain stitches. This provides the necessary height and flexibility to move up and continue the next row.

    Color Dominance

    Stranded colorwork knitting is traditional, stunning and looks so intricate! If you were considering starting a Yell sweater by Marie Wallin (we shared this pattern last week), or if you’ve ever done colorwork previously, no doubt you want the extra effort to stand out and be as beautiful as possible. You’ve probably heard about keeping your tension even so the stitches don’t pucker,...
  • Star Stitch Tutorial

    Star Stitch Tutorial

    The star stitch creates a relatively solid, thick fabric with tons of texture. The construction limits the amount of stretch and has clearly identifiable right and wrong sides. While two rows of the four-row repeat are straight knitting, the star stitch itself can be a bit fiddly - especially when first learning it. Easy to remember but requiring patience and practice, this stitch...
