Course Lessons ( 9 )

  • 1. How to: add beads with a crochet hook

    9:17

    There are two ways to ‘knit in’ beads to your knitting for an extra sparkle or interest, and for this easy technique you’ll need a fine crochet hook that is able to pass through the hole in your bead.

  • 2. How to: make eyelets (yon)

    03:53

    A yarn over needle (yon) is an eyelet worked between a purl stitch and a knit stitch, so you'll most often find this is within lace or textured patterns that switch between these stitches frequently.

  • 3. How to: work an i-cord

    05:41

    For a tight, knitted cord that needs no making up, an i-cord is the answer. Formed from just a few stitches, it’s also quick to work. All you need is a pair of DPNs to work your yarn.

  • 4. How to: work eyelets (yfwd/yrn)

    08:59

    Eyelets are useful in creating holes for edgings, drawstrings and lace patterns. The yarn forward (yfwd) is used between two knit stitches, and a yarn round needle (yrn) between two purl stitches.

  • 5. How to: decrease knit stitches (ssk)

    02:31

    Ssk is a knitting abbreviation that stands for ‘slip, slip, knit’, which is a way to decrease the number of knit stitches on a row. This will pull the overall shaping to the left.

  • 6. How to: decrease knit stitches (k2tog)

    04:28

    To reduce the number of stitches on a knit row, pulling the shaping in to the right, you'll often see 'k2tog' towards the end of pattern row. This means 'knit 2 stitches together' as one.

  • 7. How to: read a pattern

    07:05

    Let's take a look around a typical pattern to see the type of information it contains, from equipment and how much yarn, to the stitches and making up.

  • 8. How to: weave in ends

    05:25

    Tidying away yarn ends not only helps to neaten up your finished project, it also helps to secure the yarn reducing the likelihood of it unravelling – it's well worth doing a good job here.

  • 9. How to: block your work

    11:05

    Blocking is done to set the shape and enhance the stitch definition of knitted pieces, helping it to lie flat. It involves wetting the fabric before making up, incase there is any shrinkage, and it helps to set the shape. It also gives you the opportunity to shape or reshape your pieces, sharpen points or corners and straighten edges, so is especially satisfying for lace or textured patterns that can look somewhat misshapen after being cast off.
