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).

Fisherman Pillow It's a classic. Traditional fisherman-stitch patterns are adapted to create this handsome pillow, October's Knit Project of the Month. Perfect on your favorite sofa and large enough to use as a floor pillow. The Morrighan Shawl « Caroline Creations Some yarns, especially those with mixed colours over long stretches, look so good in the skeins but it’s not easy to capture that beauty into the knitted object. Duo has long stretches of one colour before changing to the next one and I wanted that to show. So I came up with this domino knitted shawl where each square will be different from the next one depending on where in the yarn I am while starting the square. The Morrighan is the Celtic goddess of death and war and she can be seen as a crow or raven flying over the battlefield.

Knitting Terms and Abbreviations This is a comprehensive glossary of common knitting abbreviations that you are likely to find in a pattern. Wherever it's relevant, I've included links to videos which cover the technique. inch(es) Minky Mittens I've been plotting another pair of mittens for awhile now. In fact, I've been plotting them for so long that I didn't manage to complete them until our first spring-ish week here in Wisconsin (oops). While my timing is terrible, however, these mittens are not; made with a slip stitch color pattern, they are thick and warm, and can be sized from toddlers to adults.

the online pattern store Faberge Cowl Inspired by the enameled and jeweled eggs made by Peter Carl Fabergé for the Czar and Czarina of Russia between 1885 and 1917, this cowl captures the beauty and intensity of Imperial Russia. This pattern is knit out of worsted weight yarn and uses slightly larger “E” or “5/0” size glass seed beads, which, along with the included photo tutorials, make it a perfect first beaded project for someone wanting to try beaded knitting, while remaining challenging enough for more experienced knitters to enjoy making. This pattern contains a photo tutorial on beading with a crochet hook, as well as a photo tutorial on the pattern stitch.

Baby E - the noro entrelac scarf Ingredients- 3 skeins Noro Silk Garden (colourway 211 if you wanna be just like me). I used up just shy of three balls. I worked out I could cut out the boring grey bits of the end of the third ball and still have a long enough scarf. Wickerwork Hat I stumbled across this yarn in my stash the other day and I realized that it would make the perfect gift for a friend who's about to move away. So I got right down to work and created this fun Wickerwork Hat, complete with pompom (there is a photo of it without the pompom below, in case you want to see it without). It would also make a great stash-busting holiday gift, since I think most of us have at least a skein or two of worsted-weight wool hanging around! * Note: As of November 2, 2015, I have added a chart to this pattern using the ever-wonderful chart generator here. You can find it below.

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
