Article: Weaving It All Together

“Basket weave, herringbone, slip and wrap stitches, stranded color work turned wrong side out—many knitting techniques allow us to imitate the look of loom-woven fabrics. What if we view our knit fabric as a scaffolding, as warp for weaving on top of and through? In this skill booster we look at techniques of weaving, sewing and embroidery to embellish our knits.”

Article: Going In Circles From The Inside Out

“Most knitters learn early on how to work in the round from the outside in—that first hat project teaches us how to decrease and use double-point needles. Knitting in the other direction, from the inside out and using increases to grow our circles (or squares!) may introduce you to a whole new knitting addiction, whether it be making small motifs or large shawls, afghan squares or square afghans.”

“Traditional quilts were made with odds and ends of fabric that were cut and pieced together. One of the best-known block designs is the Log Cabin. It is composed of a center square with tiers of rectangular logs built around it, a structure that lends itself to rhythmic, easy knitting with beautiful results.”  Photo credit: Kellie Nuss Photography
