My brother was diagnosed with Early Onset Dementia and I'm trying to get out of my comfort zone, accepting challenges and keeping my brain as fit as possible. I'm teaching myself piano and knitting. Your video is a godsend and here I am, with my first stitches. I'm grateful you're my teacher. I hope I'll be a knitter one day! <3 Love and gratitude from Italy

How do you avoid having your scarf roll up on the edges...? I try to make mine not as tight but it still curls up.
Is this only a women scarf or it can be worn by men as well
Sheep & Stitch (17 days ago)
Both men and women can wear this scarf. The stitch pattern is very unisex!

How many weeks did you take to finish this scarf?
Sheep & Stitch (17 days ago)
It took about a week! Just a little bit of knitting each day.
Renu Tupper (18 days ago)
Please would u help me with a doubt..i want thick knitting needles like you have..i noticed it is 10 mm..but the 10 mm I bought here in my town in India is extremely thin.. Help !
Jann Smith (19 days ago)
Excellent video! I like the trick you mentioned about taking your first stitch and simply transferring over to your right hand needle without actually knitting it to make a nice even and tidy edge. Does this also work for when you choose to do several rows of purl knitting ?

Hoping to take up knitting this coming autumn so I thought I'd take a look at some videos and this is the most clear and easiest to understand! I've never knitted before and I feel like I have a pretty good understand of it now! Will hopefully get some supplies soon and will give it my best shot, thank you
Tatiana Tatiana (1 month ago)

Sheep & Stitch (1 month ago)
Hi! Yes, you can slip the first stitch of every row to get a nice edge.

Hi. May I ask if I can use other yarn, other than Martta the Merino, as long as it matches the same thick size of the yarn to create the scarf? Thank you 😊

Einridi (2 months ago)
Do you have to be like a wizard or something to do this? I am doing exactly what is on screen. I have slowed the video down to.25 speed, and watched it frame by frame, and it still doesnt work
Einridi (2 months ago)
I have spent a solid 8 hours on the knit stitch, going through every single part I can, and when I transfer it to the right needle, there is either no stitch at all, or it makes a goddamn slipknot. I have no clue what I am doing wrong, I swear I'm doing just what she says..
Jay Brown (2 months ago)
it seems like the tail end that you wove in still might come out. is it not necessary to tie any knots or anything like that?
Sheep & Stitch (2 months ago)
After you cast off, you'll need to weave the tail end into the last cast off stitch. This effectively creates a knot. After that, weaving in the tail end 5 or 6 times should keep it in place. If you'd like more security, you can always weave in the tail end more times!

Racq S (2 months ago)
Hey awesome tutorial, thank you so much! I did have one question, is there a trick to not adding Loops as you go? I cast on 30 stitches my first attempt and a few hours in notice I had 38 stitches. Then when I redid it, I only cast on 15 because I was trying to start small, but I counted an hour in and I was at 29 on my needle! It seems every time, I'm adding more and more. How is that possible? What am I doing wrong? Thanks! RS
Eva Marie (2 months ago)
casting on, easy, knit stitch I'm doing the righy thing (i think?) it just looks very messy compared to yours. My problem is when i get to the end of my first row before my last stich i have a massive loop of yarn between my needles and idk what to do

The string in between my two needles when I am working keeps on getting longer and it messes everything up at the end. Did you have any trouble with that, because I am so confused.

do you need specific needles for a specific yarn? or can you use any needle with any yarn?

Thanx for actually casting on with your fingers🙏🏼
Cozmo_Sebby (4 months ago)
Wow this vid is amazing!!! I never knitted with needles before (only with looms) and you made it so simple! Other tutorials are anointing and hard to follow! By the way, I’m a kid and I am learning how to knit! I am definitely going to sub to your channel and like the vid! Just saying, in my opinion an easier cast on would be doing a thumbs um with the string in your fingers and then putting your thumb under and the string and create a loop. Then take the needle and lift that stitch onto your needle. I watched 2 other vids and that was the easiest
