Tuesday Tip: Afterthought Yarn Over

Tuesday Tip copyRecently I ran a knitalong with Creative Knitting for my Fan the Flames Cowl. Since you know, I’m gonna pack it full of tips and tricks that aren’t on the page, I thought I’d share some of my favorites here.

No need to rip out when you realize you’ve forgotten a yarn over.  Just pop it in

    Patty, just wondering. In repairing the missing YO — you lifted the thread from row 6 but then you said to lift the thread from row 7 over the row 6 YO that you created. Isn’t that backwards? Aren’t you lifting the YO you just created to fix row 6 over the running thread from row 7 to make the row 7 st that worked the YO from the prior row? Maybe I misunderstood — might need more tea today. (It’s around 2:12 or so.)

      Thanks for the clarification. That’s how I usually do it, not how you said. (Fully understand about one-take situations!) I love your videos and classes — have recommended them for my niece, who is still a beginning knitter — I’m delighted that she’s “clicked” however!
