Knitting Foundations

The Sweater Sampler – Week 4 – Videos to watch before next class.

Hello all,

For those of you who contacted me today – apologize for not getting back to you yet…I will get back to you tomorrow (Wednesday), I had some much needed down time to heal myself of this cold. Feeling much better!

Videos to review this last weeks demos:

-The Cardigan Border here YouTube – Sweater Sampler – Cardigan Border

– The Buttonhole here YouTube – How to Knit a Sweater : Knitting a Sweater: Button Hole Stitches

– The Bar Increases also known as Knit One Front and Back here YouTube – Knit One Front & Back (k1f&b) You’ll need to follow the directions in the book to work The Bar Increases in Pairs on pages 38 and 39.

Next class we will get into The Raglan Seamline Decreases pages 42 to 45. I will demo Reglan Seamline A, B, B-Reverse and C. At the very least look at the pictures in the book to see the visual differences on page 43. And please watch the following videos before coming to next class.

– Here are two great little videos demonstrating the knit two together (K2 tog) decrease, YouTube – How to Knit Decreases – Knit 2 Together – K2tog and the slip, slip, knit decrease (SSK), YouTube – How to Knit Decreases – SSK aka slip slip knit decrease. These are the two stitches that make up the gist of the Raglan Seamline A, B, B-Reverse and C.

As always, have fun with it. Jessica
