What is the best method of casting on knitting?
The long-tail cast -on method is probably the most popular among experienced knitters. It does take a bit of practice to get this method down, but once you understand what you’re doing it’s quick and easy to get stitches on the needle. Uses: The long-tail cast -on also counts as a row of knitting, which is nice.
What is the easiest way to cast on in knitting?
Knitted Cast On
- Make a slip knot and put it on your needle.
- Pass the needle in the right hand through the loop on the left needle and bring the right needle under the left needle.
- With your left hand, wrap the working yarn around your left hand needle.
- Bring the right needle back through the loop on the left needle.
Is crocheting or knitting better?
Knitting uses a pair of long needles to form the loops, moving a set of loops from one needle to another; the stitches are held on the needle. Crochet uses a single hook to hook the loops together directly on the piece. It is this major difference that makes crochet much easier to work with than knitting.
Can’t find dropped stitch?
It may be that you inadvertently knit 2 sts together or that one stitch got carried along with another on a row. Check carefully across the rows again and check at the edges to make sure it wasn’t an edge stitch. If you find it, you may be able to tie it off so that it doesn’t run down further.
Why do I end up with an extra stitch when knitting?
The most common reasons that extra stitches occur are either accidental yarn overs and inadvertent knitting into space between stitches. An “accidental yarn over” occurs when you bring your yarn to the front of the work (as opposed to keeping it in the back).
Can you undo knitting?
That’s right – it’s backwards knitting. When tinking, we undo the work stitch by stitch. It’s a safe way to unknit because all your stitches are sitting on a needle at any given moment. There is no risk of dropped stitches or any other accidental unravellings.
If the project is worked from the bottom up, that means you will need to turn it upside down. This is the fun part. Take your scissors and snip the yarn in the marked row one stitch away from the right side of the work. Carefully undo the yarn from the first stitches at the right side of the work.
