Easy to understand Knitting Tutorials for both beginners and experienced knitters. From basic to advanced knitting stitches, techniques and patterns.
PTBL is a knitting abbreviation of "Purl Through the Back Loop". It is a twisted purl stitch, often used with KTBL (Knit Through the Back Loop), to create a twisted rib pattern. Full video tutorial is also available on my webpage :-)
Emily Ocker's Circular Cast-On is often used for knitting which knits from the center out like Pi-shawl. It is also called Pinhole Cast On because where you start the project becomes almost invisible and only leaves a tiny pinhole! I LOVE using this circular cast-on technique. You will need a crochet hook but don't be intimidated. Even though you haven't learned how to crochet, I promise you, it is pretty easy!
SSK is a knitting abbreviation for decreasing stitch "Slip Slip Knit". It is explained for beginners shown in continental style. The traditional style tends to be bulky and uneven, so try this method. You can knit SSK much neater! Visit the website for more tutorials and Free knitting patterns.
YO is an abbreviation of "Yarn Over" used in knitting. It is an increasing stitch and adds a hole (aka. eyelet) to your project. Primarily used in lace knitting, and it is VERY EASY to master! The full tutorial is available on the linked page😊 Also, visit my webpage for Free Knitting patterns!
