What are the different knitting styles?
In knitting, there are two basic styles of technique: the English method and the German or Continental method. The only real difference lies in how the yarn is held. With the English method, the working yarn is held in the right hand; with the Continental method, it is held in the left.
What does * mean in knitting pattern?
You will find asterisks used in many different patterns, such as ribbing. That means that you will knit the first two stitches, then purl the next two stitches; then you will knit 2, then purl 2, again, and repeat the steps following the asterisk all across the row until the last two stitches which you will knit.
What does brackets mean in knitting patterns?
Brackets are used to indicate a group of stitches that require a number of repeats. The number following the brackets will indicate how many times this repeat must be performed. For example, [K2, YO, K2tog] 3 times means you will knit two stitches, yarn over once, then knit two stitches together.

Why is knitting so hard?
This kind of complex coordination requires practice. It will also require a lot of practice to knit stitches evenly across the whole work. I always say it should look handcrafted, not self-made. But as long as you can’t hold an even tension on your yarn across thousands of stitches, that’s hard to achieve.
