Tuesday Tip: German Twisted Cast On Tutorial (in Pattern!)


  • Andrea (xraymd)

    Unbelievably EXCELLENT – you answered questions I did not even know I had, and I now get it and have done it and it is divine!

    I wish there were a Nobel Prize for knitting instruction. You would be its winner. Actually we are all winners because of what and how you teach. The techniques may have been around for millennia but the way you explain is fresh and fully illuminating. I am smarter today because of you!

    I have a Tuesday tip request, I’d love for you to demonstrate efficient movement and flow of stitches up the left needle and (particularly) down the right. You touch on it briefly in the Improve your Knitting Craftsy class, and I understood yarn flow really well from the class, but I’m still very slow at moving stitches, which slows me down as I pause to bunch up the stitches on the left needle, and move them along on the right. It’s jerky, and not fluid. And the problem is that with small swatches, which is what most knitters use in online knitting videos, I don’t really get a feel for how it works for a larger piece, and the knitters hand often cover up how it’s done.

    Love this! Thank you Patty for all you do to make the knitting world a better place.
    I have a Tuesday tip idea: when knitting flat, when should you slip the first stitch of the new row, when shouldn’t you? I like that I can read the stitches better when I slip a stitch but I have no idea why, nor do I understand why I skmetimes need to untwist end stitches as I turn, when other times they come out perfectly off the needle. It’s a mystery!

    I would like to see a video on how to graft the ends of I-cord together.
