Does anyone have any handy hints and/or tips to share, especially for newer knitters or knitters just starting to advance from simple scarfs
I'm making a beanie at the moment and don't have a proper pattern to follow (although that could make a good tip...use a pattern!) Anyway, I had to tink two rows of knitting because I stuffed up :wall: When I was ready to start knitting again I still wasn't convinced that it was right so I decided to frog the next row (I love the knitting terms!). I was really worried about picking up my stitches and threading the needle back through so what I did was get a piece of contrasting color wool and threaded it with a big darning needle. Then I slowly pulled each stitch off the needle and using my needle and thread, threaded through the stitch loop below. When I got the end of the row I was able to get my needle and thread it through without worrying that I was going to miss a stitch. I pulled out the contrasting colour after every couple of stitches were put back on the needle. It worked a treat and now I've just knitted the next row and it's perfect :cheering:
This is probably a basic hint that lots of experienced knitters know and use, but I hadn't seen it mentioned anywhere so i thought I would post here for other beginnin knitters to use.
