Practical Knitting Wisdom

by Kate Atherley

One of the wonderful things about knitting is that there are so many different solutions to every problem, so many possible answers to every question. This column aims to expand your knitting knowledge and toolkit with practical solutions and answers to your technical knitting questions and conundrums.

This issue: How to actually knit the size you want!

These three videos are really a set. We suggest you watch all of them, in order, to get the most out of this info.

Part I: All about schematics...and "blocking" doesn't mean what you think it does!

Part II: Measurements in pattern instructions

Part III: Don't skip this important step!
