Save Our Stitches: Fixing Knitting Mistakes (2h 32m)
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.

My First Lace Shawl (2h 56m)

Join instructor Anna Dalvi in her online Craftsy class to knit the ethereal Waterspout shawl and conquer lace knitting techniques along the way!

Follow Anna’s guidance to manage the garter-tab cast-on without fear and learn her fuss-free alternative to get comfortable working increases to create the triangular shape of your shawl. Then, knit your lace and see how easy it can be to read charts, use lifelines and fix any mistakes without having to rip out your whole shawl! Anna will conclude with insider techniques for dealing with ends and finishing your fabric to perfection with your best blocking. When class is over, not only will you have an amazing shawl, you’ll also have the skills you need to create lace you’ll love, every time!

Fall in love with lace alongside knitter extraordinaire Eunny Jang. Learn to breeze through charts, and discover the best cast-ons and bind-offs for lace. Starting with simple mesh fabric swatches, you’ll progress to the alluring Arrow Scarflette and beyond. Along the way, discover valuable troubleshooting skills and develop the ability to read your own work and prevent mistakes before they happen. As Eunny expertly guides you through more intricate swatches, you’ll easily conquer double decreases, double yarn overs, knitted edgings and the “no stitch” symbol. Put these skills to use creating Eunny’s exclusive, included Ocean Scarf as your final project. Plus, learn to turn any lace stitch into a scarf!
