Standard Yarn Weight System

Standard Yarn Weight System
* GUIDELINES ONLY: The above reflect the most commonly used gauges and needle or hook sizes for specific yarn categories. ** Lace weight yarns are usually knitted or crocheted on larger needles and hooks to create lacy, openwork patterns. Accordingly, a gauge range is difficult to determine. Always follow the gauge stated in your pattern. *** Steel crochet hooks are sized differently from regular hooks—the higher the number, the smaller the hook, which is the reverse of regular hook sizing

Free Doily Patterns Printer-friendly version Send by email PDF version For the love of it: Women on farms take knitting online - ABC Rural Updated Women spanning four generations of the wool industry are fulfilling their love of knitting by taking part in a home grown online venture. I imagined they would tell me I had rocks in my head Annabel Scott, founder, Wool with Love "Wool With Love" is the brainchild of Yass New South Wales born and bred farm girl Annabel Scott, who now resides on her own family farm, just outside of Cootamundra. Frustrated that she could not find any woollen clothes for her young children, Mrs Scott wondered if she could empower older women living on nearby farms to knit jumpers which could be sold online to the masses. "We've got small children of our own and last year it was really hard to come across a good quality knitted jumper," she said.

Improv: Basic pattern for a top-down seamless sweater When I first published my top-down tutorial in early 2013, I’d only been knitting for about 17 months, hadn’t yet struck on my basted knitting theory, and didn’t take much care with the tutorial photos. In the interim, I’ve published many related posts about various details of the process. And I also never imagined how popular the tutorial would be or how many countless sweaters would be knitted from it! So in 2016, I felt like I owed it an update — factoring in some deeper thinking and linking — which is now in place. (And which also feeds into the Top-Down Knitalong!) I also realized what was missing was a short and sweet outline/pattern for how to knit a seamless top-down sweater — without all the explanation and elaboration — which would be sufficient for sweater knitters who’d simply not done it from scratch before, while also serving as a gateway to the full tutorial for those who need it.

(LESSON 2, part 1) SO MUCH YARN, SO LITTLE TIME!: Socktoberfest feature: The Latvian Twist Cuff How to make a Latvian Twist cuff. I think this is a beautiful detail on socks, and would look equally as lovely on gloves or a hat. For this particular project, I am using 3 colours and a knit 4 twist repeat. You could use whatever colour combination and make your twist longer with more stitches knit inbetween, or shorter with less stitches knit inbetween. The cuff is worked back and forth on long needles (or circs) then switch to your double pointed needles or magic loop and join in the round. Cast on with CC1 (contrast colour)With main colour, knit 2 rows.
