Video: How to Unknit {correct a mistake when knitting}

posted in: Videos | 0

In this video I briefly describe how to unknit when you notice that you made a mistake a few stitches back…

I also have another video when you notice that stitch or stitches a few rows later.

Unknit isn’t technically a word, but it should be because I do it a lot! ;)
And, I’m pretty sure I’m not alone on this.

Unknit means to unravel your knitted project one stitch at a time, using your knitting needles.

Story:
When I was learning how to knit I talked to a few people about knitting versus crocheting and which one they preferred and they said that they preferred crocheting because if you make a mistake when knitting you have to unravel the whole thing and start over. That was a little discouraging, but not the whole truth. I’ve made lots of mistakes that were easily corrected by one of the methods above.

I hope this encourages you to keep knitting ;)

Have a wonderful day!

Video: Seed Stitch VS Moss Stitch

posted in: Videos | 0

Hi there! In this video I’m going to discuss the difference between the Seed St and the Moss St.

When you’re looking at the front of your work the Seed St look like this:
K1, P1, K1, P1, K1
P1, K1, P1, K1, P1
So, you’re knitting your purl sts and purling your knit sts.

When you’re looking at the front of your work the Moss St look like this:
K1, P1, K1, P1, K1
K1, P1, K1, P1, K1
P1, K1, P1, K1, P1
P1, K1, P1, K1, P1
So, you’re working 2 rows K1, P1 and then 2 rows P1, K1. It’s very similar to the Seed St, making it easy to get them confused.

They both offer a great texture!

I hope you found this to be helpful.
Thank you for watching!

How to Sew a Moss Stitch Seam

In this video I’m finishing up a cowl I knitted using the moss stitch {currently my favorite stitch} and I’m going to show you how I sew up the seam.

I don’t know if there’s a right way or wrong way, but in this video I show you how I sew up my moss stitch seam on my TO LEAD Cowl. I love this seam… it’s not a hidden seam, but it’s nice and neat ;)

I hope you find this video to be helpful.
Thank you so much for watching!
