I started knitting 9 years ago but never really got past the basics. I stopped for a good few years but Iver the last few months have really thrown myself into it! I love it!
That said, I really was finding it a struggle to remember some of the stitches and techniques and came up with a few mnemonics to assist me. If you have any, I’d really like to hear them.
M1L: Friday boozy bender went left. =The running thread is placed over the left needle from front to back and the right needle goes in through the back.
M1R: Barny fries fish just right.= The running thread goes over the left needle from back to front and the right needle goes in through the front.
To recall which way to pull the working yarn if I drop stitches: The beachfront bar let’s us in through the back. =Now I know that if a stitch has a bar across the front of it (a purl) I need to pull the working yarn through the back of the next stitch (a knit).
