It’s Day 2 of our 31 Days of Knitting Stitchionary Series and today we are demonstrating the King Charles Brocade Stitch. This stitch is a little more complicated, but still really fun to knit. You can make it as long as you want, and it’s designed to go on a background of stockinette stitch however wide you need for your project!
Hi ya’ll, I’m super excited to get started on our 31 Days of Knitting March challenge. Each day for the month of march we are going to do a video tutorial for a different stitch on the Knitting Loom. This will be a fun way to increase your library of stitches and help you develop some more skills on the loom. The first stitch we are going to do is the Garter Slip Stitch. This is a fun version of the Garter Stitch that looks good with pretty much any yarn. [Read more…]
Loom knitting is a relatively new concept in knitting. It’s not nearly as common as traditional knitting, but in recent years it has been picking up speed. It’s a great alternative to needle knitting if you have issues that make it difficult to do technical work with your hands or fingers for extended periods of time. I personally started loom knitting after getting frustrated with the speed at which I could knit with needles. I’m an embarrassingly s needle knitter. After doing it for years, I realized it was probably never going to be something I would get fast at. I had an issue with tensioning my yarn that no technique or way of holding the yarn would fix.
Even though I wouldn’t consider these stitches a part of the basics for loom knitting, I still thought they were important stitches to know before we start our 31 days of knitting series on March 1st! This is a two part video series in which we will cover 3 common decreases & 3 common increases you might run across in your knitting. The 3 decreases included in the first video are Passing a Stitch Over (PSO/PSSO), Slip Slip Knit (SSK) & Knit 2 Together (K2Tog). The 3 increases we cover in the second video are a simple Yarn Over (YO) and two versions of Knitting Into the Same Loop (KFB – Knit into the front and back of a loop & P1,K1,P1 into the same loop) They are all very easy stitches to get a hang of and simple to replicate on the loom!
