    Do you need to do this every day for 14 days, or can you skip days and come back to it?

    Can you do a series on basic mittens for beginners? So many methods out there, I am getting overwhelmed and confused. And a similar series but for chunky hats. Thanks!

    I hope I’ll be able to watch the series and re-learn some of the basics, after taking a holiday from knitting to work on big needlepoint projects.

      Hello Lynn,
      Here’s what the experts had to say about your question:

      We show the basic stitches with the yarn held in both the left hand and right hand. If you are looking for truly left-handed knitting (where everything is knit in the mirror image), I recommend checking out this Craftsy class: https://www.craftsy.com/class/left-handed-knitting/

      Please let us know if you have any further questions

      Thank you. I learned to knit years ago but preferred to crochet because I was faster at it. But now I am back to needing to knit for re-enactment items.

    I’m a shepherd and love the wool the flock produces and want to strengthen my basics to be able to knit more complicated patterns and eventually design my own.

    Thank you for this series. I would also like some advice on how to knit socks with sock yarn. I have struggled with it. I also have noticed that many videos show the continental way of knitting and I knit the English way.

    I always seem to twist my stitches, so I want to stop doing that! And learn some newer stitches, too. I usually make hats.

    Looking forward to expanding my knitting beyond dish cloths—a cowl would be a good project to begin the expansion. Thank you.

    I just started knitting again. I am making a sweater for my friend’s granddaughter who is 8 months. The size will be one year to 18 months. I decided on the 7 hour sweater. Having trouble on row 6. Every other stitch, you knit one and increase one, finishing the row with 51 stitches. Started the sweater with 37 stitches. I am tired of ripping out the first six rows and starting over to get the right count on the stitches.

      Hi Susan,
      Here is what our expert had to say:
      Because the pattern is free on a blog, I was able to find the pattern and read it.

      You have 37 stitches on row 5, as you said.

      Row 6 says to “increase 1 in next st, K1.” In order for the math to work to 51 stitches, that means you need to do something like “kfb, k1” for that part. Kfb is knit front & back into the same stitch. Basically, just make sure you are increasing 14 stitches on row 6 using whatever increase method you like best!

      Let us know if other questions come up!

    not very good knitter, self taught more or less, was taught to “knit a Christmas stocking” but not really taught “how to knit”, been trying to self teach ever since…slowly, via written instructions mainly as I can only be on the computer a limited amount of time because of eye trouble/it causes me migraines. my next step is to try to make socks that fit people!

    Apparently I learned how to cast on weird. I learned some sort of hybrid between longtail and knitted. I learned the technique of the longtail, but the tail is at the bottom of my cast-on row. Is there a name for that?
