Picking up stitches like a boss!

...That's p3 k1 across a multiple of 4 sts - then k3 p1 across the flip side - then p2 *k1 p3, rep from *to last 3 sts, k1 p2 - then k the k sts and p the p sts as they appear across the flip side - then start from the beginning again

No Bump KFB: Instead of knitting into the front and back of the stitch, knit into the front of the stitch, don't remove it, go in as if you're going to knit into the back and slip it off the left needle onto the right. You eliminate the purl bump.

Tip: Use thick cording to reinforce handles & tops of bags

How To Knit a Neat Selvage. Knit to the last stitch of each row and bring the yarn forward before slipping it. The result resembles a line of knit stitches running up the side of the piece, not unlike a bound-off edge.

Tutorial. The Frilled Cast On is extremely simple and gives a pretty, frilled edge that looks like crochet and blocks quite flat on a Stockinette Stitch piece. It is a good match for the Picot Bind Off, and is a nice alternative to Ribbing, Garter or Moss Stitch when you want an edging that is more decorative or delicate..

Twined knitting by Garnstudio Drops Design. A several hundred year old traditional Scandinavian knitting technique. You use two strands of yarn (even when knitting in solid color). Knit each strand alternately and twist them between each stitch. The resulting fabric is firmer and denser than regular stockinette stitch and creates a warm, dense and wind-resistant fabric. As perfect today for mittens, hats and socks - as it was back in the 1600s.

Sweater shoulders: transform stair steps to short rows and radically improve shoulder shaping.

Linen Stitch: Works on an even number of stitches. Row 1: *Knit 1, slip 1 with yarn in front. Repeat from * across, ending with a knit 1. Row 2: *Purl 1, slip 1 with yarn in back. Repeat from * across, ending with a purl 1. Repeat these two rows for pattern. When slipping stitches, always slip as if to purl.
