Have you ever made a decorative bobble stitch and had each bobble lean to the left or to the right? In this video, Kelley shares tips on how to make bobbles that are perfectly centered and do not lean to the left or the right. This bobble is a decorative stitch that allows you to make 5 stitches out of 1 stitch, then you knit several rows and then decrease the 5 stitches down to one stitch to make a nicely centered bobble. This bobble technique tutorial is using the reverse stockinette stitch method of knitting.
Garter tabs are used to knit shawls when you want your garter stitch edge to be continuous. You start at the center of the shawl and you knit the garter stitch edge in both directions.
Using the method in this video, I used the Judy's Magic Cast On then flipped my work over so that my purl bumps were showing, then began to knit flat on one side back and forth to create the garter stitch edge.
