Free Cute Knitting Patterns
When I have spent hours working on knitting a sweater, I want to make sure it looks as good after a dozen washes as it did the day I was knitting it. I wanted to set out some basic knitting instructions as a refresher so here it is. Let's start with some basic patterns.
You can master the basics in less time than it took you to figure out how your email program worked. Learning how to knit from another person will make knitting much easier. It also helps to read the written instructions and than watch the videos.
Knitting has been around for thousands of years, and probably always will be. The fibers making up a yarn may be continuous filament fibers such as silk and many synthetics, or they may be staples (fibers of an average length, typically a few inches); naturally filament fibers are sometimes cut up into staples before spinning. When knitting, the yarn ball winder should be used to keep the yarn at an even tension. All knitting instructions use basically two stitches, the knit stitch and the purl stitch.
William Lee, who invented the first knitting machine in 1589, also made a knitting frame which was so effective that few improvements were needed for 250 years. Such needles are usually 10-16 inches long but, due to the compressibility of knitted fabrics, may be used to knit pieces significantly wider. Plants used for fibers include cotton, flax (for linen), bamboo, ramie, hemp, jute, nettle, raffia, yucca, coconut husk, banana trees, soy and corn. If you are knitting with circular needles, you can start making tubular scarf for this cast around 300 stitches, and join them together in a circle.
To do a yarn-over after a knit stitch, just bring your yarn across your work from the back to the front. You watch it come to life as you go, and little by little, your knitting becomes reality.
