You have cast one stitch on to needle #1. 5. Bring needle #2 over the yarn tail on your thumb, around and under the yarn and back up, making a loop around needle #2. Pull the loop snug around the needle. You have cast one stitch on to needle #2. There are now two stitches on needle #2 Ñ the stitch you just cast on plus the anchor loop. The top yarn strand always wraps around needle #1 (the bottom needle), and the bottom yarn strand always wraps around needle #2 (the top needle). 6. 7. 8. In this picture, a total of 20 stitches, or 10 stitches on each needle, have been cast on. Turn back to the right side to begin knitting. 9. Knit the row of stitches from needle #1. You will see a row of stitches appear between the two needles. 10. Be careful! You have completed one round and are back where you started. Note: Do the stitches between the needles appear too loose or "sloppy?" There are two rows of stitches between the needles now. Round 3: K all stitches on both needles (no decreases).

How to knit with two circulars How to knit small circumferences with two circulars You don't need double-pointed needles to knit small circumferences like sleeves, gloves, socks, and the top of hats. Instead you can use two circulars, which cuts the number of joins down to only two. A few people have claimed credit for this neat trick; I think it's one of those things that occured to multiple people about the same time. I learned how to do it by reading a magazine article written by Joyce Williams (Summer 2000, Knitter's magazine). Select your needles You can use two circulars of any length; 16" through 29" seem to work the best. I prefer to use two needles with different cable lengths so I can always tell at a glance which needle I'm holding. If your two circulars are identical in brand and length (which makes them impossible to tell apart) you can place a marker after a few stitches have been worked on the first needle so you know the circular with the marker is needle #1. Casting on How it works That's it!

Information ©Pat Ashforth & Steve Plummer 2014 In 2009 we suddenly took an interest in illusion knitting. It was very different from the mathematical work that can be found on the main part of the Woolly Thoughts site. As we searched the Internet we became more and more confused by the different descriptions and decided there had to be a better way so we looked at the technique with a mathematical, logical approach. Since then we have gone on to develop our own method of charting and, by doing so, we can now create far more complex designs than anything we had seen before. As you move from page to page you will inevitably find some things repeated.

Les steeks ou comment couper dans son tricot | Du Tissu, de la Laine et du Thé. Je vais profiter du pull Norwegian pour reparler du tricot en circulaire et des steeks, puisque l’on me pose encore de temps en temps quelquees questions à ce sujet. Ce pull se tricote donc en rond, sans ouverture jusqu’aux épaules, ni pour les manches, ni pour l’ouverture au niveau du devant. Rien du tout. Un tube de bas en haut. Pourquoi? En tricotant en rond: On ne fait plus que des rangs endroits, et tricoter toujours à l’endroit c’est plus rapide et le tricot est plus régulier, On ne suit plus le diagramme que dans un sens, de droite à gauche, ce qui est plus simple, Et pour finir il n’y a pas de couture.Ce qui pour ceux qui détestent les coutures est appréciable. Et c’est la méthode traditionnelle du tricot norvégien. Le devant du pull se tricote dans le sens des flêches vertes, il faut donc arrêter les mailles centrales au niveau de la ligne mauve horizontale. J’ai donc mis les mailles centrales en attente sur une aiguille auxilliaire. Ces mailles s’appellent les steeks.

The Pretty Picot Cast On...a Tutorial I have uploaded two videos demonstrating the details of today's post, but in the first video, I was alone, and had to content with severe body contortion and a deep sustained squint (I was eventually sure that I was looking myself in the eye...) in order to film this here little clip... Normally my precious daughter does the filming while yours truly demonstrates knitting bliss, but in the first video, I set up my trusty tripod and after considerable trial and error , I managed to get the whole thing focused, while leaning, arms akimbo, back pretzeled, around the darned tripod. This resulted in me only being able to see what the heck I was doing , by looking at the video viewer a half inch from my nose :[ Ok, so what am I trying to say? The video makes me look like I am trying to knit while demonstrating sign language, so please forgive this ambisinistrous knitter... The Picot Cast On...with a twist! Most of the web sources will describe the picot cast on by using 5 stitches initially.

Paging... a doctor... of some kind... - The Pearl of Civilization 25 Sep 2006, 11:02 · diy, knitting, knitting patterns I’ve been trying to figure out who to name this knitted doctor mask after. It seems like surely there is a doctor who presides over fashion with accidental political relevance, the way Dr. Freud presides over objects with accidental sexual inuendo. Perhaps I am confusing doctors with saints. Galen, in a heroic effort to work with my vague doctor-related presentiments, suggested Dr. Free knitting pattern: cozy doctor mask The mask is worked in stockinette stitch with a narrow garter stitch border, with garter stitch ear straps attached afterwards.

magazine - Short rows for bust shaping (technique feature) Short Rows for Bust Shaping Short rows have lots of uses. They make a flat object take shape. They can be the heel of a sock, or they can turn the stair stepping of a shoulder into a smooth angle. They can build up the back neck in a raglan sweater, or they can shape a sweater front for a large bosom. Today’s article is focusing on short rows for bust shaping. First, let’s talk about what short rows do Short rows add length to the overall body. As many of you know, I’m a very busty girl. One of the things I look forward to most about wearing a sweater I hand knit is that I won’t have to do any of that. If you’ve done some reading about short rows for the bust you’ve probably found several approaches to them.

Techniques with Theresa - Fall 2008 - what's with gauge “To save time, take time to check gauge.” “Check your gauge before starting.” “IF YOU DON’T CHECK GAUGE, HAIR WILL GROW OUT OF YOUR EARS AND YOUR KNITTING WILL SPONTANEOUSLY COMBUST!!” You’ve all seen the warnings … but is gauge really as important as they say it is? How important is gauge, really? If the thing which you are knitting needs to be a certain size, gauge is incredibly important – fully as important as those dire warnings lead you to believe. When you want to knit something where size matters - a sweater for your teenager daughter, mittens for yourself, socks for your best friend – a slight difference in gauge makes a large difference in finished size. Row gauge – though ignored by many a knitter – is also important, especially for shaping. Gauge, defined. Gauge is defined by as “the fineness of a knitted fabric expressed by the number of loops per unit width”. Making a swatch. Measuring gauge on garter stitch To measure stitch gauge in garter stitch, place the marker…

Maybe on my next pair of socks I'll give that a try. I only do the 1 or 2 circs method. Should work fine I'd say. by douglasgrendahl Dec 21

I have done it and it's not hard to master, although I have to read the directions again each time I use it. I usually do socks 2 at a time and there are instructions for that on the Internet too. I don't know if I've save that link in Pearltrees. by stacyw Dec 20

Ok, has anyone tried this technique and if so, comments? by douglasgrendahl Dec 20
