Suggestions to help this forum run its best...
Be as specific as possible in your title
examples: what is k2tog? joining a new colour? best Bind Off for lace?
This makes it easier for others with the same question later to find the answer. Also helps us to recognize if we've already read your post. Easier for us than general titles like "Help, what do I do?"
Provide any helpful info about your project.
examples: guage, yarn used, needle size, a link to the pattern or name of the magazine, a picture of your work in progress
These are often useful or necessary to answer your Q. Remember not to quote a pattern in its entirity, however, since that violates copyright. Thanks!
Don't put yourself down
examples: silly question, stupid problem, I'm dumb
We do not believe any question is silly, dumb, or stupid. We all need help sometimes, and folks here love being helpful, so ask away!
Please use a link to the pattern when possible. If you own the pattern do not post the entire pattern, just the part that you need help with.
Other suggestions when needing some guidance:
- try using our search link (it's at the top of the page with the magnifying glass icon)
- try to contact the writer of the pattern or the website/magazine presenting the pattern
- see if you can get someone to help you in person from a local knitting group or a store that carries yarn
