Tips & Techniques
Learn the professional tricks of the trade that can make your projects look more polished and your knitting life more enjoyable. Patty digs deeper into her bag of tricks to present a whole new batch of sanity-saving knitting tips. From cast-on to finishing and everything in between, learn simple tricks to make your knitting better, like how to avoid the dip you get at the start of a bind-off or the hole under a make one. Learn how to make the knitting decisions that can add polish to your work, like choosing the right way to join a new ball or weave in those ends. Even learn simple fixes to avoid tragedy, such as how to fix a dropped stitch in your cast-on or what to do when you find a bad bit of yarn in your work, or a mistake in your stitch pattern after you’ve bound off! Be prepared to add a few more favorites from Patty’s new bag of tricks.
