    • Picking Up Along a Cast On or Cast Off Edge

    • Picking Up Stitches Along a Shaped Edge
      • Insert into row below edge (NOT IN BETWEEN STITCHES)
      • Lift up stitches to make loops on right needle
    • Picking Up Along a Side Edge
      • RS facing you
      • Insert from front to back between 1 st and 2 nd stitch
      • Act as if knitting stitch
  • Knitting with a Circular Needle
    • Why
      • Large number of stitches
      • Knitting in the round
    • Knit as if you are using regular needles
    • Allows knitting to spread out
    • Cant loose the other needle!
  • Changing Yarn Balls
    • Always tie knots on the side edge
    • Check to see if you have enough yarn
      • Can the yarn go across the needle four times
    • Drop the old yarn (literally)
    • Use the new yarn to wrap around the first stitch
    • After a few stitches, loosely tie the ends together
  • Knitting Two Strands at Once
    • Keep the balls separated so they do not tangle
    • Knit as if it was one large strand
    • Color effects
      • Experiment!
      • Unique combinations
    • Remember to check your tension!
  • Weaving in Ends
    • NEVER JUST CUT THEM!
      • Risk for untangling
    • Thread yarn into large- eyed needle
    • Loosely sew into the side of your work
    • After about 2 inches, turn around and come back
    • Now you may cut the end safely
  • Fringe
    • Cut 12 inch lengths of your yarn
    • Group them 4 strands at a time
    • Using your needle, create a small hole in the 2 nd row
    • Fold the strands in half
    • Pull the loop end into the hole
    • Pull the loose ends through the loop and knot
