HOW TO MAKE ONE STITCH (M1)

A customer recently told me that she didn’t know what “Make One” (M1) means. I said I would be more than happy to cover the subject on the SKEINO video blog.

Making One is really simple and in this video I will show you a few options to do so.

 

So what do you think about Making One Stitch? Also if you have a subject you would like me to cover in a future episode, please let me know in the comments here or on Youtube!

EDGING FOR STOCKINETTE STITCH

After publishing last week’s episode in which I talked about how to knit perfect edges we received so much great feedback from our SKEINO community and our customers. There were also plenty of questions about edging for Stockinette Stitch.

This is why I decided to make another video about edges and of course this time we are focussing on how to knit edges for Stockinette Stitch.

As you might know this technique tends to make your knitted piece “roll up”. Although this can’t be avoided completely I found out that you can keep rolling up to a minimum using the techniques I will be explaining in this video of our weekly knitting blog.

 

I hope you liked the video. For questions and other feedback please feel free to contact me in the comments section here or on Youtube.
