Lace Knitting Stitches

Lace Knitting Stitches
A hole can be introduced into a knitted fabric by pairing a yarn-over stitch with a nearby (usually adjacent) decrease. If the decrease precedes the yarn-over, it should typically slant right as seen from the right side( k2tog, not k2tog tbl).If the decrease follows the yarn-over, it should typically slant left as seen from the right side ( k2tog tbl, not k2tog).These slants pull the fabric away from the yarn-over, opening up the hole. Pairing a yarn-over with a decrease keeps the stitch count constant.Many beautiful patterns separate the yarn-over and decrease stitches, k2tog, k5, yo.Separating the yarn-over from its decrease "tilts" all the intervening stitches towards the decrease.The tilt may form part of the design, e.g., mimicking the veins in a leaf. There are few constraints on positioning the holes, so practically any picture or pattern can be outlined with holes.

One Skein Shoe Rug There are currently no images from other crafters. close Terms & Conditions Technickety: How to unvent a simple cable I had a heap of messages asking where the cable for Jeff's glove came from. It's a fairly generic multi-strand cable; called a "Saxon Braid" (thanks, Purly White!). I see Wendy at wendyknits has used it for a sweater, and I'm sure it's to be found in stitch dictionaries. That said, being able to read an existing cable and knowing how to reconstruct it is a very useful skill. I'm not suggesting, of course, that the following be used in any way that takes credit away from a designer of a garment - rather, this is a reference for understanding how a simple cable works and how to write a chart.

Edge stitches (selvedges) Soooo… you want to be a better knitter? 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! Wrapped Stitches I’ve heard this many times: “There are only two stitches used in every piece of knitting—the knit stitch and the purl stitch.” I guess that’s true, but what about the yarnover? It isn’t really a stitch, I suppose, but it’s used so often that I think of it as one. There are so many uses for the yarnover—there's lace knitting, of course, which is lousy with yarnovers, but there are also stitch patterns such as wrapped stitches and faux cables.

Knitting Stitches Whether you're just starting your journey in the world of knitting or are simply looking for an easy knitting stitch for your project, the Basic Stitches category is the place to visit. Knit & Purl The Knit & Purl category includes stitches with different level of difficulty, created only with simple knit and purl stitches. If you've stuck to knitting in single colors, or maybe just ventured into stripes, here's some good news: You can achieve what appear to be complicated color patterns while using only one yarn at a time! Many knitters suffer from fear of Fair Isle because they are loathe to carry two colors at once. It seems complicated and unwieldy. If you're ready for a little more adventurous use of color and pattern, why not try mosaic knitting? Using a simple slip-stitch technique, you can create bands and borders in pattern, or even a whole sweater, and you won't ever have to carry a second yarn along! Color slip-stitch knitting has been around for a long time, but it was brought into the spotlight for a time by Barbara Walker who dubbed the style "mosaic knitting" in the late '60s.

Lace Knitting Patterns Lace knitting is sort of addictive, and is sometimes considered the pinnacle of knitting because of its complexity.
