Knitting

How to join knitting in the round
Knitting in the round is very simple, but sometimes the initial joining together can be a bit confusing.  Have a look at our video showing you how we go about it and see if this helps!
How to knit Herringbone stitch
One of my absolute favourites!  Herringbone makes the most beautiful fabric which is interesting on both sides.  Because of the way you knit it, it is almost double thickness and incredibly squishy! I have made several throws using herringbone... the stitch is slow to do, but not at all difficult and has the advantage that the rows are very high so grows reasonably quickly!
How to sew or graft two cast off edges together
There are lots of clever little finishing techniques that can make a project look so much better and this is one of them.  It can be used anywhere where you have the same stitches that have been cast off (or a cast on edge) and need to join them.  If the stitches are still on the needles then you can use Kitchener Stitch or even a three needle bind off, but for squares like the example shown, this is perfect!  
How to knit a rib scarf
If you haven't knitted for a while and can't quite remember how to do it, this video shows you how to knit a rib scarf.  You will need to have cast on already (have a look here if you need help with this) and I'd recommend casting on a multiple of 4 stitches so that you can start every row with 2 knit stitches (helps cut down the mistakes!). Before you know where you are, you'll be back knitting again!
How to Knit - Part 3 Purling
Once you can knit, all you need to be able to do is purl and that's basically it!  Everything from that point onwards is a variation of these two basic stitches.  Purling tends to come less naturally than knitting but is just knitting in the reverse...  have a look at the video to explain!
How to Knit - Part 2 The Knit Stitch
Once you can cast on (Part 1) you can virtually knit.  Here is a video to guide you through the basic knit stitch!
