MERRELL HAT AND SCARF KNITTING TUTORIAL

This time I will show you the SKEINO Merrell Hat and Scarf, a knitting kit that will not only knit up a scarf but a hat too! It is a 2-yarn project and super easy to do, even if you are a beginner knitter.

In the first part of this episode I will explain the structure of the scarf and the hat.
In part two I will show you how to knit the piece and why the scarf tends to create a bias form on its own. Watch my special advice for edging and yarn changes.

If you like this kit you can find it here: http://ss1.us/a/D2ps7gVO
On the product page you will also be able to download the pattern for free.

Watch this video if you want to take a closer look at the yarn or if you want to reassure yourself just how easy this project is to knit.

 

…And as always: Happy Knitting!

Love,

Bjorn

HOW TO DESIGN A GREAT SWEATER

Today I have a special episode for you! In this knitting tutorial I will show you how to knit a sweater at a beginner’s level. This is a cuff-to-cuff design which will make the Cuddle Sweater an easy to knit piece.

I will explain the overall construction and how you can create your very own design: You can choose the length and width of the cuffs as well the overall fit of the sweater.

We will also look into seaming and crocheting the neck opening. A classic crewneck or a turtleneck – it’s all up to you!

 

 

I hope I could inspire you to be creative with this sweater design! We are offering this as a kit on SKEINO in 2 packs: XS-L and XL-XXL. You can also add a single skein to your order to be extra creative!

As always please leave a comment here or on Youtube!

HOW TO KNIT IN THE ROUND

A customer asked me if I could teach her how to knit in the round and I told her that I would make a video about it. If you are also unsure or curious about the technique this video is for you. Knitting in the round is really quite simple if you take care of a few basics. Let me walk you through them in the video.

 

 

I hope you could take something away from this short class. If you have questions or comments please let me know in the comments or right on Youtube.

HOW TO KNIT BOBBLES

In this episode I will talk about a fun subject: How to knit bobbles.
If you have never knitted bobbles or bubbles before you will find that it’s not too difficult. I’m using two different colored yarns so that it is easy to see for you.

I hope you liked this episode. As always any comments or questions are more than welcome.

KNITTING WITH DIFFERENT YARNS IN ONE PROJECT

I really love to think out of the box when knitting. One such thing is combining different yarns in the same knitting project. In this video I will show you a few examples of my designs where I did combine knitting yarns using the same pattern.

If you want to knit one of these designs yourself here are the links to our SKEINO website where you can find them. These knitting kits are on sale and will eventually be gone so some of these links might not work in a few weeks from now:

2-Yarn Scarf 

Bertie’s Shawl

Lengthwise Scarf

Feather And Fan Afghan

 

I hope you liked this episode. Now you should have a good idea about how to knit with different yarns in one project. If you want to knit any of my designs please visit SKEINO. You can also use your own stash and try out one or another of the techniques above. For questions or recommendations please let me know in the comments!

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.
