Save Our Stitches: Fixing Knitting Mistakes

with Ann Budd
Become a more confident, capable knitter as you learn to recognize and remedy any knitting mistake you make.

Mistakes are a part of knitting, but you can learn how to fix them with knitwear designer and author Ann Budd. Discover what your stitches should look like so you can catch issues early. Get an overview of counting rows and reading charts to minimize the number of problems you might run into. Read your knitting to easily find your place after you've put your knitting aside. Fix mistakes in stockinette stitch, textured stitches, lace and cable patterns, whether the stitches are still on your needles or even if you've bound off. Rip out rows safely and securely when necessary and ensure that all of your stitches get back on the needles properly. Take the mystique out of mistakes to finish flawless projects.

"Ann is very logical and thorough in her presentation and I have already picked up a useful tip about selvedge edgings. I knew that traditionally a lot of knitters would slip a stitch at the beginning of a row but I didn't know why, I thought it was just their preference. Now I know why! (...)I love the way Craftsy teachers teach us how to read our knitting, not something I was aware of BC (Before Craftsy). My knitting and my understanding has improved heaps as a result of this in the last year or so. Ann is a good communicator and has a warm personality which makes me feel like we are going to get along really well."
