Knit For Crocheters Series Day 7: How To Read Your Stitches

So now you know the knit and purl stitch and the very popular stockinette stitch pattern. But do you really know your stitches? Can you tell what would come next if you put your work down and had to pick up from where you left off?

Today’s video will show you how to read your stitches so you can do just that. No matter where you are in your project, you’ll be able to pick up where you left off and continue on with no problems.

 

The video will go over just reading knit and purl stitches since that are all we have covered so far. But in the future, I will add more stitches and videos for them.

Knit For Crocheters Series Day 5: The Purl Stitch

I think next to perfecting my cast on, the purl stitch gave me the most problems. I tried countless different ways to do my purl. Finally, after watching a Craftsy class on Continental knitting, it clicked!

The purl is a very subjective stitch. You will see many different versions and I don’t think anyone of them is better than the other. However, I do think you will find one is better for you than all the others. I’m sharing with you my purl, but if it doesn’t click for you, DON”T GIVE UP! Watch more videos, go to your LYS, find other ones to try. I promise, one will click and you’ll be good to go after that.

So check mine out below, see how it works for you. Let me know in the comments if you’ve found a great purl, where you found it, so if mine doesn’t work others can check out your recommendation.

Knit For Crocheters Series Day 4: The Knit Stitch

The knit stitch is the most basic of all knit stitches. That’s why it’s called the knit stitch!

You will use it for everything you do in knitting so learning it first and practicing it over and over until you are comfortable will ensure success in your knitting future.

I highly recommend getting completely comfortable with this stitch before you move on to the purl stitch. Luckily, you have the rest of today to work on it before I add the purl stitch tomorrow.

When You Need A Quick Refresher ~ I’m Here For You

Have you ever been in the middle of a pattern and it calls for a DTR, or a picot, and you just can’t remember how to do it. Sure, you’ve done it before, but you can’t remember if you should yarn over 3 or 4 times and you don’t want to watch a 10-minute video to figure it out.

Well, I’m here for ya. I’ve created the Super Fast Stitch Refresher Series to get you that info in the shortest time possible. I’ve compiled the most used stitches and made a short video for each. No extra talking, no extra explaining, just a fast video to show you the stitch so you can move on with your project.

The current line up is below. I have a few more I’m working on as well, but if you can think of any other stitches you wish you had a quick video to reference, let me know in the comments below and I’ll add them to my to-do list.
