I know winter is quite a long way off but we are in England and it feels like winter everyday. Another follower sent this link over for knitting chunky blankets. There are several pages to the article and you have to click the “continue” button a few times before you get to the tutorial so I have done the hard work for you.

Tutorial for knitting the blanket is here

Tutorial to make the roving is here

You can purchase the roving here and the pattern is here

Is giant knitting your thing? There’s one more tutorial that we’ve found and it’s a beginners guide to arm knitting. Yes you read that right, Arm Knitting.

Tuesday Tips

What decreases are there in Knitting?

 

“Decreases

Decreases remove stitches, narrowing the knitting. The most common ones you will find in patterns are K2tog (knit two together) and SSK (slip, slip, knit). They’re easy, just watch the videos. There are also double decreases, which remove two stitches at once. I don’t feature any of these on that decrease page, but you’ll find at least one in the Glossary (see, for example, CDD).”

At Unravel & Unwind we used these tutorials as back up resources in between our knit-a-long classes. Here’s a short video that has a good visual representation of 2 methods described in the link above.
