Kelley shows you know to knit the Channel Island bind-off. This bind-off is similar to the Picot bind-off but it's a little more subtle in appearance.
Bind off using the Channel Island bind-offmethod as follows;
1. Cast on 2 sts using the knitted cast-on method.
2. *With right needle tip, lift the second stitch on the left needle over the first stitch and off the needle* repeat once more.
3. Slip one stitch from left needle to right needle as if to purl.
4. K2tog on left needle. There are now 2 stitches on right needle.
5. On right needle, slip the second stitch over the first stitch and off the needle.
6. Slip one stitch from the right needle to the left needle. Repeat Steps 1–6 to end of row. Pull tail through last stitch. Weave in ends and block as desired.
Like many of you, I was researching various masks to make for my friends and family and wanted one that could be made quickly, had a nice fit around the nose, and provided an option for a replaceable filter to provide a little more protection for myself and others nearby. So I fired up my sewing machine and started experimenting!
I finally came up with a mask that I was happy with, so I thought I'd share it.
Handknit gloves are so special, and Kelley has whipped up a great free pattern for an easy pair, knit from our exclusive Bravo yarn. These gloves are soft and luxurious but also very practical. Alpaca is warm and light, so these gloves will be light as air.One of the challenges of knitting gloves is avoiding the holes that inevitably appear between the fingers, usually because enough stitches weren't picked up or they were picked up too loosely. Kelley has solved that problem!
Sometimes you just need an easy project to work on, and Kelley's new free pattern, the Simple Ribbed Hat, is the perfect cast-on for times like these.
We debuted this pattern on a recent Technique Tuesday on Facebook Live, and Kelley used it to demonstrated how to fix a few common mistakes knitters make all the time (even a pro-level knitter like Kelley!).
You'll learn how to fix dropped stitches, turn purls into knits, and fix incorrectly oriented stitches.
