Boost Your Knitting Video Tutorials
We have twelve new techniques, twelve patterns from twelve fabulous designers, twelve sets of photo and video tutorials, and most importantly, twelve opportunities for you to experience the joy of learning something new!
Boost Your Knitting is a completely self-contained programme that will grow your skills and build your confidence in your knitting. It follows a similar format to our first book, A Year of Techniques, but does not require any previous knowledge from that collection.
You can purchase Boost Your Knitting (print and ebook bundle) for £22.00 plus shipping: Boost Your Knitting
march - tuck stitches
Nancy Marchant’s beautiful Bramen Cowl allows us to tuck stitch with confidence. The video tutorials will walk you through the two-colour long-tail cast-on method, tuck stitches and the sewn cast-off method. Lots to learn this month!
APRIL - Fixing mistakes in lace
April’s technique is fixing mistakes in your lace knitting, and Joji Locatelli’s stunning Sterlyn Shawl design gives us the perfect canvas on which to build our skills.
may – 1x1 Tubular cast on in the round
Knitting mittens in May is perfection. They are small and portable, and come the cooler months you will be delighted with your foresight! Sarah Hatton’s Totally Tubular Mittens will have you casting on like a pro.
June – dip stitches
Thea Colman’s Apple Swizzle Hat is going to fly off your needles, introducing you to dip stitches, and making a fun, portable project to work on at summer barbecues.
JuLY – intarsia in the round
Socks are the perfect project when the weather warms up. Julia Farwell-Clay’s lovely Heartgyle Socks will have you intarsia-ing in the round in no time.
AUGUST - Choosing colours for stranded colourwork
Whatever the weather, it’s fun to play with colours! Felicity (Felix) Ford’s Knitsonik Stranded Colourwork System has changed the way I work with colour, and I hope our video and pattern this month will help you to grow in confidence with choosing colours too. Her Skystone Armwarmers are the sixth design in Boost Your Knitting.
SEPTEMBER – brioche knitting
Carol Feller’s Flying Leaves Scarf is a great project for getting to grips with brioche knitting. The rows are long enough to get you into the rhythm of the stitch pattern, but there aren’t too many of them! We have also created video tutorials for the Two-colour Italian cast-on method and the tubular cast-off method, to give your project the most professional finish.
The October video tutorials will be released on Tuesday 1st October 2019, so do check back then.
