Today, I want to talk a little bit about Slip Stitch knitting and Mosaic knitting. But first, in case you missed it - I had a few video tutorials hit my YouTube channel over the last few weeks. I posted a couple videos on weaving in tails at a color change and in Fair Isle… Continue reading Slip Stitch versus Mosaic Knitting
Today I have a video for you showing my favorite way to work jogless jogs. Stripes in the round inevitably have a "jog" at the color change, unless you do something to mitigate this. It's due to the fact that in the round knitting is a spiral, and there is no seam where color changes… Continue reading Jogless Jog: Row Below Method
Today I have a quick video showing you how to work the "two-circular" method. This is my favorite way to knit socks (I prefer it over the magic loop method.) Hopefully this is helpful - it's really very easy! Until next time, Happy Knitting!!
Today's post is a special request from a viewer! She wondered if I had a video showing the figure 8 specifically on reverse stockinette, since I briefly mention in my one figure 8 video that the process can be a bit different in that stitch. So here you go!! The figure 8 for reverse stockinette… Continue reading Figure 8 Start for Reverse Stockinette

Basically, mirroring requires two things: The increases or decreases are placed/located the same number of stitches from each edge. The increases or decreases are reflections, or mirror-images, of each other. So, a set of decreases would have an ssk on one side and a… Continue reading Mirroring Increases and Decreases
Today I have a video showing you some twisted decreases. These are used any time you want to maintain a line of twisted stitches - so in Bavarian twisted stitch work and similar. They can often be found in lace knitting as well.10 The key with these is that both stitches involved in the decrease… Continue reading Twisted Decreases
Today I have a video on several double decreases (worked on the RS). I cover the CDD (or S2KP) and the SK2P, as well as K3tog, and Sssk in the video below. CDD (or S2kp) - slip 2 sts as if to knit them together, knit the next st, then pass the slipped sts over.… Continue reading Double Decreases
Today, I have a tutorial on the German Twisted cast on, also known as the Old Norwegian cast on. This is a cast on in the long-tail cast on family - so you'll need a long tail and you'll have your yarn and hands in the "slingshot" position typical of the long-tail cast on. Here… Continue reading German Twisted Cast On
