Beginner Knitting - The 50 Best Videos

A new video knitting e-book is out, and it's all about Beginner Knitting. When you just learn to knit, most yarn stores and videos leave you to fend for yourself, leaving it to you to navigate through the wilds of YouTube or the bookstore, trying to find more instruction so you can break out of beginner knitting.

This video e-book is the answer!

"Intermediate Scarves and Stitches" uses the 50 best beginner knitting videos to show you exactly what you need to learn to progress to more difficult projects. Casting on, purling, reading your work, recognizing and fixing mistakes... it's all here!

You'll never have to spend another frustrating evening alone, unable to knit because you've made a mistake you don't recognize, or unable to read the pattern that you've just bought. Check out "Intermediate Scarves and Stitches" and finally break out of beginner knitting!

Best Brioche-Knitting Videos on the Internet!

I just wanted to let you know that the brand-new video knitting e-book is out from KNITFreedom: Brioche Knitting!

Brioche Knitting Video E-Book Are you ready for a walk on the wild side? Welcome to the world of brioche knitting, where the possibilities for color and texture multiply, and all your knitting skills are taken one (or a few) steps further than they’ve ever been taken before.

What is Brioche Knitting?
Brioche stitch is a two-layered fabric that looks somewhat like ribbing, although it is constructed differently. Like ribbing, it is reversible and can be used to make all types of garments, with cables, increases, decreases, and color-patterns.

Like double-knitting, brioche has two right-sides, but unlike double-knitting, the two sides are knitted one after the other, instead of all in the same row.

Brioche stitch can be done with one, two, or as many as five or six colors, and incorporate Intarsia color-blocks, just like regular knitting. Most of the patterns you’ll see call for two contrasting colors.

Because you can do anything with brioche that you can do with regular knitting, and many things that you can’t, brioche knitting is a complex and almost boundless subject. This e-book has 20 brioche videos to teach you beginning and intermediate brioche skills.

Here is a free easy hat pattern for Magic Loop - it's just right for practicing Magic Loop if you are just learning! You can also watch the video I included on using the Travelling Loop - a nice trick for dealing with round projects with lots of stitches on them.

You can use the same supplies you used when you learned Magic Loop - size 7 40-inch circular needles and worsted-weight yarn.

Head to KNITFreedom for the free pattern!
