Sneak peek on my process of working on new crochet pattern - bell skirt.

It's kind of etno / boho chic style that I admire.
I am going to make a swatch and  submit for yarn support to Knit Picks.
I think their Lindy Chain yarn is perfect for this project.


Happy crafting, my friends!

Finished Baby Deer Knitting Pattern for KnitPicks.com

I made it in a week working super-fast because I want to move on to finish my other patterns. Knit Picks Swish Worsted Yarn is thinner that the one I used before, so I had to try a few needle sizes until I settled for 5.5 mm instead of 4 mm.
It is very soft and silky wool, pleasure to work with.

Happy crating, my friends!

Free knitting tutorial - How to Knit Socks, Sleeves, Mittens on Any Size Circular Needles.


I encountered this problem when was designing seamless kids hoodies and hats.
Any circular needles would be too long for kids sleeves and for the smallest hat size.
You can use DPNs - double pointed needles or as I know some people knit exclusively on circular needles these days, you might like this technique: 

How to knit small diameter tube-like pieces (socks, sleeves, small hats, mittens) on any size circular needles:

1. Cast on required number of sts plus 1 extra st.
 
2. Pull one needle out if you used both needles.

3. Slide sts to the cable.


4. Divide sts in half and pull the cable out creating a loop in that spot.

5. Slide sts to the needle points. Make sure the edge is not twisted and you are facing RS. RH needle is with working yarn end.

6. Connecting in rnd: slip last cast on st from RH needle to LH needle.

7. Pull RH needle out with enough cable for you to comfortably knit with it – about the length of the needle.

8. Knit (or purl, depending on your pattern) 2 sts together – last cast on extra st and 1st cast on st – rnd is connected. Knit all sts from LH needle.

9. *When you finish LH needle drops.

10. Pull cable so sts from the cable slide to LH needle.

11. Pull RH needle out again with enough cable for you to comfortably knit with it.

12. Knit 1st st from LH needle. Pull working yarn with force to tighten last 2 sts.
Because of the gap bet needles last 2 sts may be left very loose if you skip this step. Knit rem sts. Place marker on cast on rnd to mark beg. Repeat from * - step 9.
