Edge stitches (selvedges)

Probably one of the single biggest wholesale improvements you can make to your knitting is: use edge stitches . Unfortunately, this is one of those knitting things that sometimes I hear complaints about: that no one explicitly spells out this for you in a knitting pattern — you’re supposed to somehow just "know" about them, and how to do them. Well, if you really want to be a better knitter, you’ll educate yourself!

Read on, sister! Why use edge stitches? Edge stitches, or selvedges, have so many advantages I will probably miss at least one or two — but you are welcome to add anything I miss in the comments. New knitters ask me if one is supposed to "always" use edge sts. Mostly, the advantages of edge stitches far outweigh any potential disadvantages. Reversible Stitch Patterns.

Recycle Tutorial – Making Of T-Shirt Yarn

This is the yarn ball I made out of an old T-shirt which I have been wearing for 10 years day-in day-out, wash-in wash-out. It finally broke down and tore at the collar and sleeves. Waste not, want not, I decided to recycle it. I have finished making the drawstring bag as shown above.

Mack and Mabel: Knitted Flower Tutorial

I added one to a hat I made for a friend recently and she said she was forever getting stopped by people asking where she got such a cute hat! I've used it on several of my patterns over on Etsy and they are always good sellers. But you don't need to stop at hats.... add them to cardies, blankets, bags, purses, scarves, mittens... the possibilities are endless. So, let's get started! - you need oddments of double knit (light worsted in US, 8 ply in Australia) yarn and size 4mm (US size 6) needles. 5th Row: Knit 1, [cast off (that's bind off in US) 9sts] five times. Cut the yarn, leaving a good length and thread it through the remaining stitches.

Still with me? See what I mean... its a teeny, weeny, fiddly little thing that you'll lose down the side of the sofa if you're not careful, but it's gonna make that flower look good! Yeah, sure......

This pattern came to be when a knitter emailed me after spying a tiny striped elephant on a shelf in Itty-Bitty Hats on page 18. She wanted to know where to get the pattern. I had no idea where that elephant came from until a friend (thanks Renee) told me about this . I am sure the original is a crocheted toy from this site and boy oh boy, are the other toys available here ever cute. I decided to make a pattern for a knitted version of this little guy and share it with you here.
