Course Lessons ( 6 )

  • 1. 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.

  • 2. How to: work garter stitch

    04:44

    Once you can work in knit stitch you can do garter stitch! Every row is a knit row, which creates a distinctive, textured effect, and as this fabric is reversible, be sure to know which is the right side for making up.

  • 3. How to: Swiss darn (duplicate stitch)

    08:04

    This is a clever way to add small blocks or details of colour through embroidery while retaining the knitted look of your fabric, as Swiss darning uses yarn in a tapestry needle to go over existing knit stitches.

  • 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: knit a bobble on one row

    7:32

    Bobbles are brilliant for adding individual chunky dots where you need them or as an all-over pattern for an interesting cushion or jumper and are easy to make, if a little fiddly until you get the hang of it.

  • 6. How to: work cables (C4F/C4B)

    09:21

    To knit a cable, you'll temporarily hold a specified number of stitches at the front (F) or back (B) of your knitting, while you work others – the method is the same. This swaps the order and creates the twist effect.
