If you're having trouble with the project you're working on, and need a little help, we'll work through it together. I will help you to find and fix mistakes, learn the stitch technique, or interpret a pattern or chart that isn't clearly understood. Offered via Google Helpouts, this one-on-one hangout, or live video call, will begin by you quickly explaining to me what you are making, what questions you have, and where you think a mistake might have been made. We will then go through that portion of the project to uncover the mistake or area of concern. Finally, I will demonstrate the correct method to move forward with the project. If additional assistance or instruction is needed, a more in-depth help out can be scheduled. The widget below the video will live here on the resource center, just below the +Yarn Mountain logo.
This morning I was tagged in a Knitting Lodge post requesting help deciphering the written instructions for the Double Twisted Knit stitch, as found in the book, Vampire Knits by Genevieve Miller. Here is a demonstration on my interpretation of the written instructions. Good luck to anyone taking on this conquest!
Follow along in this video tutorial as I demonstrate the beginning and special stitches used to make Kaleidoscope, a quick and fun project for beginners! Requiring just 350 yards of Fingering weight, you can finally use that special skein you've been saving!
