Course Lessons ( 7 )

  • 1. 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.

  • 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: knit one below (fisherman’s rib)

    6:54

    Knitting into the stitch below the one on the needle is quick to master and produces an extra thick stitch that is especially effective within a rib pattern, such as fisherman’s rib.

  • 4. How to: work in the round (on DPNs)

    14:07

    Socks, gloves and some toys can be knitted on sets of double-pointed needles, rather than circular needles, to form the essential tube, making this is a great technique to have under your belt.

  • 5. How to: knit in the round (on circular needles)

    10:54

    Circular needles are a handy piece of kit for projects with a large circumference or lots of stitches. Short needles are linked by a flexible cord to join your cast-on stitches into a circle and take the weight.

  • 6. 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.

  • 7. How to knit an easy mermaid

    05:10
