I’ve had a prolific few weeks of knitting and now have a Cardigan and some wrist warmers to make up. I’ve watched the video for mattress stitch which looks fine but I have a few questions:
After casting off, should I continue straight into the mattress stitch with the same bit of yarn?
How do I secure the end when I finish, and secure the start if I’ve already cast off and cut the yarn?
For the wrist warmers, I need to leave thumb holes of around 4cm - what do I do with the yarn in that gap? If I just run it up the inside, I’ll keep catching it with my thumb which will be very annoying!
Thanks for any help or advice x
P.S. Just bought a stunning pattern book and some lovely alpaca yarn from Toft Alpaca Shop. It’s expensive but the wool is gorgeous and the designs amazing, so if you’re looking for something a bit special, I’d recommend it. Can’t wait to get some new 8mm needle tips for my 80cm circular set so I can try their moss stitch snood!
