One way to do this might be to just buy a soft flannel baby blanket, then align it with the back of yours and attach it by taking one of the yarn colors used in the front. You could thread a short...

I love my Options. You can tell when the needles are beginning to loosen by the yarn snagging a bit. I just keep an unbent paper clip nearby in case that happens.
Works as well as that little...

Those Darn Gussets

I think you were doing it right the first time. On toe down socks, you'd decrease at each end of the bottom of the foot and the top of the foot on the ML for a total of 4 decreases every other...

I'm another fan of the Russian join. It works on any weight yarn as long as it's not one-ply. The trick is to pull both loose ends through until the loops tighten on each other and then starting at...

About the marker question... I would arrange the sleeves so that the decreases are in the middle of one half of the magic loop. There's not a good way to place markers where the loop divides. Also,...

Sure, you can use a long-tail cast on. One neat trick is to cast on one more stitch than the pattern calls for. Then when you join to form a circle, slip that extra stitch to the other needle and...

I agree with Suzeeq, but I just want to say that I made that same dishcloth as a practice piece before trying "real" Entrelac. It was fun to do, but I used leftover sock yarn (non-absorbent) so it's...
