►►► VIEW THE FULL BLOG POST: https://sheepandstitch.com/library/how-to-knit-with-double-pointed-needles-for-beginners/ Double pointed needles may seem scary at first, but learning how to knit with double pointed needles will improve your knitting game in so many ways. If you want to knit socks, mittens, sweaters, or even hats, you’ll want to master double pointed needles. In this knitting video, you’ll learn why these bad boys are necessary, how they differ from circular needles, and most importantly, how to use them! WHAT YOU’LL LEARN: 1. Why you need DPNs 2. Why DPN knitting is like taking a bus 3. Circulars vs DPNs - what's the difference? 4. How to knit with double pointed needles step-by-step VIDEO CHAPTERS: 00:09 Difference between Circulars and DPNs 00:54 How do DPNs Work? 1:46 How to knit with DPNs HELPFUL RELATED VIDEOS: ➜ How to Knit in the Round for Beginners: https://youtu.be/_BNZx2Nt8Ng ➜ Top 5 DPNs Tips: https://youtu.be/LGEWafA6BuI ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- * Footnote for knitting nerds: Okay, there exist micro circular needles that are teeny-tiny and smaller than 16", but honestly, those things are crazy. I tried them once and my hands were cramping after fifteen minutes. I find them unpleasant, and I’d much rather work with double pointed needles for my small circle knitting needs. But if you're a daredevil, try out a pair of micro circulars and maybe you'll never need DPNs again. Who knows!

How to M1R (make one right) and M1L (make one left) Knitting Increase
 
04:32
►►► VIEW THE FULL BLOG POST: https://sheepandstitch.com/library/m1r-and-m1l-knitting-increase/ The M1R knitting increase is really similar to the M1L increase. In fact, they're two sides of the same coin! Both the M1R and M1L are techniques that will increase your knitting by one stitch. The only difference is the direction of the increase. The M1R increase slants to the right, while the M1L slants to the left. Sometimes a knitting pattern will simply ask you to "M1" (aka. "make one"). In these situations, you can knit an M1R or an M1L. It's totally up to you. While working an M1R or M1L, you might wonder why you need to slip the strand of yarn from one needle to another. It seems complicated, right? The purpose of picking from the back or front and slipping to and fro is to ensure that the strand of yarn is TWISTED. This ensures that the increased stitch does not have a big hole in it. That extra twist keeps the stitch tight. So, when you knit into your twisted stitch, you should feel a bit of resistance. If the picked-up stitch is loose, then you know that you haven't twisted the stitch properly. __________________________ /// VIDEO CHAPTERS /// 00:47 M1R method 1 2:08 M1R method 2 2:34 M1L method 1 3:34 M1L method 2 __________________________ /// WEBSITE /// Visit http://sheepandstitch.com for more knitting tutorials, patterns, and fun! __________________________ /// SUBSCRIBE /// Click here to subscribe: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=sheepandstitch __________________________ /// VIDEO GEAR /// * Check out my shooting gear on Kit: https://kit.com/SheepandStitch

It's stretchy, lays flat and looks pretty darn nice too! Because it's all-around awesome, make the longtail your default cast on. It won't fail you. But it can be a bit tricky to do at first. So, follow along and take it slow: clamp down, make a diamond shape, touch your thumb. (These terms only make sense after you watch the video!). More knitting fun at https://sheepandstitch.com

How to Make a PERFECT POM POM Every Time
 
08:50
►►► VIEW THE FULL BLOG POST: https://sheepandstitch.com/library/how-to-make-a-pom-pom/ Today I’ll show you how to make a pom pom without a pom pom maker! Pom poms add cheer and whimsy to every project. They make great accessories, and they’re the cherry on top of a knitted hat. They also make great stress balls! Thankfully, making a pom pom is not hard. If you can use a pair of scissors, then you can make a pom pom! All you’ll need are a pair of sharp scissors, cardboard (an old tissue or cereal box works great), yarn, and a can or a jar to help you trace a circle. That’s it. No commercial pom pom maker necessary! The secret to make the perfect pom pom is to use lots of yarns when wrapping your donut, make sure your scissors are super sharp, and finally, to use your donuts as a tracer to help you cut a perfectly round shape. So, good luck and happy pom pom-ing! __________________________ /// MATERIALS /// ⟡ Malabrigo Silky Merino Yarn (Loveknitting) = https://www.loveknitting.com/malabrigo-silky-merino?utm_medium=affiliate&a_aid=22ca8fee ⟡ Similar sharp scissors (Amazon) = https://amzn.to/2D8oR1A ⟡ Similar super expensive scissors (Amazon) = https://amzn.to/2QHiLYP __________________________ /// WEBSITE /// Visit http://sheepandstitch.com for more knitting tutorials, patterns, and fun! __________________________ /// RELATED VIDEOS /// ➜ How to Knit a Big Hat: https://youtu.be/23gmF0WFXdI ➜ How to Knit an Infinity Scarf: https://youtu.be/iw42NDGBGY4 ➜ Knit the Baby Pom Scarf: https://youtu.be/cIsRWNVbPkA __________________________ /// SUBSCRIBE /// Click here to subscribe: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=sheepandstitch __________________________ /// VIDEO GEAR /// * Check out my shooting gear on Kit: https://kit.com/SheepandStitch Disclosure: this description contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links and make a purchase, I’ll receive a very small commission at no cost to you.

How to Switch to Double Pointed Needles
 
06:09
Switching to double pointed needles is not hard at all. In this knitting video, I'll show you two ways to transfer stitches from circular needles to double pointed needles. This technique is super helpful when knitting hats and mittens. The first transfer method is the easy and long way. The second is the hard and short way (it's not actually hard, just harder relative to the first method). Both methods will show you how to transfer your stitches to double pointed needles in no time at all.

How to Unwind a Hank of Yarn
 
02:37
►►► VIEW THE FULL BLOG POST: https://sheepandstitch.com/library/how-to-unwind-a-yarn-hank/ Sometimes you'll see yarn wound up in a twisty bundle. This is called a hank. In order to knit with a hank, you'll need to unwind it into a ball first. Learn how to do it in this video! Now, you may be wondering, why do hanks exist in the first place? Isn't a ball of yarn good enough? Why the complication? One reason is this: yarn dyers who dye by hand do so by looping yarn into a big circle and then dying that big yarn circle. Once the yarn is dyed and dried, the easiest way to package that yarn is by twisting it into a bundle - that would be a hank! Rolling the yarn into a ball or into a skein requires machinery that can be expensive and/or time-consuming whereas hanks are much easier and quicker to make. For this reason, yarn that's wound in hanks are perceived to be artisanal or high quality. Almost all hand-dyed yarn are sold in hanks. Personally, I love hanks. Sure, you need to wind them up, but the yarn looks so much prettier in a hank, like it has space to "breathe." And the yarn winding experience gives you time to "get to know" your yarn before you knit with it. But, I'm a bit romantic when it comes to yarn, so there you go!

How to UNRAVEL KNITTING the RIGHT WAY (3 Methods)
 
13:20
►►► VIEW THE FULL BLOG POST: https://sheepandstitch.com/library/how-to-unravel-knitting-the-right-way/ Frogging knitting, which is jargon for unravelling your knitting, is a frustrating but necessary rite of passage for every knitter. Knitting mistakes are bound to happen, and sometimes the only way forward is to unravel the knitting and start again. It can be painful to watch all those beautiful stitches disappear with a simple tug. But once you’ve ripped back your knitting, a trickier situation arises: now that your stitches are loose, how will you put them back on the needle? Just jam them back on, willy-nilly? Absolutely not! There’s a right way and a wrong way to unravel your knitting. In this video, we’ll go over three ways to frog knitting. ** DID YOU KNOW? ** Knitters call unravelling “frogging” because it’s descriptive of what happens to your kitting: “rip it, rip it, rip it,” which sounds an awful lot like the sound that a frog makes: “ribbit, ribbit, ribbit.” Get it? Not the wittiest pun, but it’s stuck, and is now part of modern knitting vernacular. _________________________________________________________________ VIDEO CHAPTERS: 00:23 A Quick Word about Twisted Stitches 02:23 Method 1: Unravelling a Few Stitches 04:17 Method 2: An Unsafe & Time-Consuming Way to Unravel 09:25 Method 3: The Safest Way to Unravel Knitting 12:55 Thanks for watching!

Scarves are nice, but at some point you’ll want to knit hats, mittens, socks and even sweaters! What do these things have in common? They’re all 3D and tube-shaped. In order to knit things in 3D, you’ll need to knit in the round. There are a number of ways to knit in the round, but the easiest involves knitting on circular needles. Circular needles are similar to flat needles, except that the two needles are joined together by a flexible cable that allows your stitches to curve into a round shape.

STITCH MARKERS: stitch markers mark the beginning and end of your round. Stitch markers can be anything round and ring-like, like a rubber band or a ring that you wear on your finger. Of course, you can also purchase stitch markers like the Clover split-ring stitch markers that I use in the video: http://amzn.to/1R9tVgB 3. MINIMISE THE GAP: After joining in the round, pull tight on your first stitch so that no gap forms where you join your work together. 4. NEEDLE LENGTHS: Choose a needle length that’s smaller than the finished size of whatever it is that you’re knitting. For example, if the finished measurements of your hat is 19 inches, use a 16 inch needle). Needles shown in the video*: - Knitter’s Pride 16” 7mm bamboo circular needle: http://amzn.to/1LkzrQK - Chico Goo 24” 10mm bamboo circular needle: http://amzn.to/1LkzzzP - Clover 36” 6mm bamboo circular needle: http://amzn.to/1R9uPd3 * The links above are Amazon affiliate links.

Alternating Cable Cast On for Perfect Ribbing
 
14:16
►►► VIEW THE FULL BLOG POST: https://sheepandstitch.com/library/alternating-cable-cast-on-for-ribbing/ The alternating cable cast on is a beautiful invisible cast on that looks great with ribbing. The edges of the cast on elegantly merge right into the knits and purls, giving the illusion of no cast on at all. The alternating cable cast on is also quite stretchy, making it nicely suited for ribbing. In fact, I sometimes refer to it as my “ribbing cast on”! While this cast on is more advanced than a long tail cast on, it’s a great technique to use for hats, mittens, socks and sweaters, where ribbing abounds. Try out the technique and take it slow. Rewatch parts of the video if you need. It’s really a fantastic cast on to have in your back pocket! __________________________ /// VIDEO CHAPTERS /// Intro to Alternating Cable Cast On: 00:01 Comparison with Long tail Cast On: 00:34 Cast On Demo: 00:45 Knitting the 1x1 Rib: 6:36 Knitting the 2x2 Rib: 7:44 Knitting in the Round: 13:07 A Chat with You: 13:17 __________________________ /// RECOMMENDED VIDEO/// ➜ Rib Knitting for Beginners (1x1 and 2x2): https://youtu.be/dCJj3pW2nRY __________________________ /// WEBSITE /// Visit http://sheepandstitch.com for more knitting tutorials, patterns, and fun! __________________________ /// SUBSCRIBE /// Click here to subscribe: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=sheepandstitch __________________________ /// VIDEO GEAR /// * Check out my shooting gear on Kit: https://kit.com/SheepandStitch

// HOW TO KNIT: A FREE BEGINNER SERIES // Check out the full series: https://sheepandstitch.com/how-to-knit/ In this video, I’ll show you how to cast on knitting like a pro! This is the thumb method cast on. If you have no idea what that means - no worries! Just know that it’s an easy and super useful cast on that both beginners and old hands use all the time. So, you’ve got needles and a ball of yarn. Cool! Now you want to knit something. But how do you get the yarn onto your needles? Say hello to the cast on! Casting on is a way to turn loose yarn into neat stitches that can be knit. It’s the first step in knitting. All you need is some yarn and needles. What needles and yarn should you use? I always recommend a chunky yarn and correspondingly thick needles for beginners because they’re much easier to grip. In this tutorial, I’m using Lion Brand’s Hometown USA and 8mm bamboo needles. You’ll find tutorials and guides for making a Slipknot, Cast On, Knit Stitch and Cast Off. These techniques form a sturdy foundation in knitting. // MATERIALS // * Lion Brand Yarn Hometown USA in color Ft.

How to CAST OFF Knitting for Total Beginners
 
05:13
/// HOW TO KNIT: A FREE BEGINNER SERIES /// Check out the full series: https://sheepandstitch.com/how-to-knit/ Today you’ll learn how to cast off knitting once you’re finished your project. How exciting! At this point, you’ve got some rows of knitting under your belt. You should be very proud of yourself! You’ve used two sticks to transform a loose bundle of string into a knitted rectangle. Now it’s time to get your knitting off the needles. To cast off knitting, you’ll start on a new row and knit the first two stitches. Now you’ve got two stitches on your right needle. Take the first stitch and bring it over the second stitch. Think of the first stitch leapfrogging over the second. Now you’ve got one stitch on the right needle. The other stitch has been cast off. Knit one more stitch from the left needle. Once again, you have two stitches on your right needle. Take the first stitch and leapfrog it over the second stitch. Another stitch has been cast off! Continue in this manner until one stitch is left on your needle. TIP: When casting off, remember that you always need TWO STITCHES on the right needle. No more and no less. One stitch is the leapfrogger, and the other one is waiting be leapfrogged over. Casting off is a game for two. When you’ve got one stitch left, cut the strand of yarn, leaving a tail of 5-6 inches. Thread that yarn into the last stitch and pull tight. Your cast off is secure. Huzzah! Now your project is complete. It’s all grown up and ready to enter the real world! You’ll find tutorials and guides for making a Slipknot, Cast On, Knit Stitch and Cast Off.

KNIT STITCH for Total Beginners
 
08:05
/// HOW TO KNIT: A FREE BEGINNER SERIES /// Check out the full series: https://sheepandstitch.com/how-to-knit/ The knit stitch is the most basic and fundamental stitch in knitting. After all, it’s the namesake of the craft we’re learning. Master the knit stitch and you, my friend, are a bonafide knitter! In this video, I’ll walk you through the knit stitch. Like most skills, knitting takes time to perfect. You probably won’t get the hang of it on your first try. You probably won’t even get it on your second try. The important thing is to keep trying. Why? You’ve heard the concept of “muscle memory,” right? It’s the idea that the more you repeat a movement, the more it becomes second nature. Because the movement is controlled by your subconscious mind instead of your conscious mind, you don’t need to think through each step of a movement. Without thinking, you can just do it. That’s muscle memory! So, don’t fret if you don’t get the knit stitch right away. Most people don’t. The more you practice, the faster muscle memory will kick in. Before you know it, you’ll be knitting with your eyes closed. You have muscle memory to thank for that! You’ll find tutorials and guides for making a Slipknot, Cast On, Knit Stitch and Cast Off. These techniques form a sturdy foundation for knitting. // MATERIALS // * Lion Brand Yarn Hometown USA in color Ft.
