  7. 7. Picking Up Stitches • Picking Up Along a Cast On or Cast Off Edge – RS facing you – Insert from front to back under both loops – Act as if knitting stitch • 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 1st and 2nd stitch – Act as if knitting stitch
  8. 8. 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 • Can’t loose the other needle!
  9. 9. 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
  10. 10. 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!
  11. 11. 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
  12. 12. Fringe • Cut 12 inch lengths of your yarn • Group them 4 strands at a time • Using your needle, create a small hole in the 2nd row • Fold the strands in half • Pull the loop end into the hole • Pull the loose ends through the loop and knot
