How do you make french knitting tighter?
Continue to French knit until the cord is as long as you like. Keep making loops and stitching them through the center of the dolly. You may need to pull your stitches tight by tugging the yarn tail that comes out of the bottom. When you’re ready to cast off, leave a single loop on each peg.
How do you start being a tomboy?
Start by tying a small loop around the first popsicle stick. Then make your way around the popsicle sticks, making a loop (without tying a knot) around each one. When you make it back to the first one, bring the wool above the knotted loop. Then pull the loop, bringing it over the top of the strand of wool.
How do you finger knit with a toilet paper roll?
