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!

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.

I hope you liked watching this video. Please contact me in the comments here or on Youtube if you have any questions.
