Foundation cast-on

A very stretchy, lacy cast-on for knitting and Tunisian crochet. I'm really pleased with it!

Get inspired this will with our latest Something for the Weekend instalment! Dig out your needles and learn how to knit the Japanese Lace Stitch!

Elastic, stretchy cast on method for knitting, great for ribbing, almost invisible. Dubbed the "accidental method" in my head, since it was made by mistake when attempting the long tail cast on method.

This method of casting off was developed to compliment the look of the long tail cast on. By sewing the tail of your yarn through the stitches, you can create a finished edge that perfectly mirrors the long tail.

Country Cottage Blanket

Knit with triple-stranded chunky weight yarn, this super plush ribbed blanket is an incredibly quick knit. It's the perfect project for beginning knitters who want the satisfaction of an easy finished product they can enjoy all year. Great for DIY dorm room decor!

Easy to follow directions for multiple ways to bind or cast off a finished knit project. (I had no idea there were so many different methods-some are stretchy-good for necklines, one mimics the cast on edge--good for blankets, and others are decorative.)
