HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Before meeting with my family for Christmas I travelled to Berlin to enjoy a few happy hours on the city’s wonderful Christmas markets, which I intended to share with all of you. Unfortunately the horrible terrorist attack happened, right before we arrived in Berlin.

We decided to make this video anyway in order to show you just how strong the people of Berlin are in these difficult moments. After all it is Christmas and we want to get together with our families and loved ones. We shot this video on December 21st and I think you can see the strong reaction of Berliners showing that they are not afraid.

Our condolences go to all of the people who have lost friends, loved ones or family in Berlin on December 19th 2016.

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

KNITTING WITH TWO DIFFERENT YARNS USING THE SAME NEEDLE SIZE

In this episode we will take a look at how you can knit a project with two different yarn weights without having to change the needle size.

As an example I will knit SKEINO’s newest kit, the Denali Shawl. I designed this piece using our Flame Yarn which is super bulky and our Merino-Nylon Sock yarn. I love the textures of the different fibers and I thought you might like it too.

The Denali Shawl can be found here: http://ss1.us/a/QD9JnI34
