New Knitting Pattern : The Grace Cowl

posted in: Blog | 0

Grace Cowl Knitting Pattern by Brome Fields

This design came about because I love the elegance of the cable stitch and the simplicity of the knit stitch.

I went with the light cream yarn because it’s classic.

It goes with just about everything and it feels clean and pure.

I chose a thick & chunky yarn to make the project quick and cozy.

So, knitting this in the round makes it a snap!

This is becoming a collection.

I also have patterns for leg warmers and a hat to match ;)

I’m working on some boot cuffs and hopefully some fingerless gloves too!

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.

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!
