7 Amazing Knitting Tips and Techniques Videos

By:

What I love most about knitting - besides being able to create practical garments by hand - is that with every single project, my skills increase and I learn something new.  Learning how to knit initially is certainly a milestone, but the learning doesn't just stop after you master how to cast on, knit and purl.  The more you knit, the more you learn; and the more you learn, the more projects you'll want to make.  With this ongoing process of absorbing knitting tips and techniques daily, it's no wonder why so many knitters have dozens of new projects lined up and even more started or nearly completed. Knitting is fun and addictive, and who doesn't like learning a few knitting tips and techniques to keep the fun going on and on? 


Even if you've been knitting for years, a good tip never hurt anyone!  In this special collection, AllFreeKnitting has rounded up some of the best videos YouTube has to offer.  From learning how to pick up dropped stitches, to making sure you wash your hand knit garments properly, this collection will give you quick tips and knitting tricks that you can use for years.

Beginner Knitting: How to Cast on Beginners

There are many ways to cast on, but this is probably the easiest.  This is also a great way to start casting on if you're a beginner because you only need to use one needle.  Check it out, you might learn something new!

 

 

Knitting Techniques: How to Wash a Scarf

By: Serena Nelson for eHow

If you've made your first knit scarf, congratulations!  If you've made scarves before, but still aren't sure how to wash them without wrecking them (I've been there), then this video will give you some great tips.  

 

 

Mattress Stitch Seaming

By Knitting Help

Once you finish a knit project, seaming is another monster entirely.  Thanks to this video, it doesn't have to be a scary monster.  Learn how to conquer the popular mattress stitch seaming method.  With this easy seaming technique, your work will be left without a visible seam.

 

 

How to Splice Yarn

By Vicki Square for Interweave Videos

Connect two pieces of yarn together using the splicing method.  Not heard of this method before?  Check out this video to get the latest and greatest knitting tips and techniques.

 

 

Picking up Dropped Stitches

By Make Magazine

We've all been there before, we let a few stitches drop from our needles and we didn't know what to do.  Don't frog your work, because there's no need.  Watch this video and learn how a simple latch hook tool can save you hours of extra work.

 

 

How to Knit Backwards

By MonicaKnits

If you make a mistake while knitting, simply knit in reverse and go back to the point before the mistake was made.  It's not as scary as it sounds; watch this video to see how it's done.

 

 

How to Gauge Knitting

By eHow

Almost every pattern begins with a group of numbers indicating gauge, and emphatic instructions to "get the gauge."  If you're not sure what gauge is or how to find it, this handy video will tell you everything you need to know.
