Welcome Ty!
Just dig in and knit what you want. Don't worry about having to accomplish a specific project. Just try different things, and you'll soon find the kind of projects you enjoy knitting. Sometimes, I become addicted to certain yarns, and try finding projects for them. Other times, I have a certain goal in mind....like a hat for my son, or a scarf for my hubby. Just enjoy your hobby.

Knit-Alongs are just a group of knitters all working on the same (or similar) project. We answer each other's questions, and encourage our progress. Check out our Knit-Alongs section, to see which ones we have right now. Welcome!

Welcome back to knitting! We missed you!

Here's Amy's videos on how to bind off your knitting:

Pattern problems..is it me or the pattern?
Hi! I am excited to have just registered and am looking forward to connecting to members of the forum. I have a new pattern book called 60 Quick Knits 20 hats, 20 scarves,20 mittens in cascade 220. I am attempting to knit a scarf from the pattern 12 named Cables and Wraps Scarf. Each time I knit the first row of the pattern stitch I have stitches left over. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Pattern rows based on multiple of 18 stitches plus 5. Cast on 41 stitches.Here is the pattern row.

Row 1(RS) P1,*k1, inc in next st, (inc is listed in glossary as ( k1,yo,k1) in st-2sts increased) k1 p2, k1 tbl, p2, k1, k3tog, k1, p2, k1 tbl, p2:rep from*once more, end k1,inc in next stitch, k1,p1.

I really hope someone out there would take a look at this for me to see if it actually works. I have tried this over and over with the same results. I am pretty sure I am doing the stitches correctly but something is NOT working. Thanks for your consideration.

If you saw this post previously I have just edited to include a typo I made myself (oops). I missed the k1 after the first increase when I first posted. Corrected now.

I count 17 sts in the repeat, not 18, so there may be a typo there.

oops! I made a typo myself....I missed writing down k1 after the first inc

Row 1(RS) P1,*k1, inc in next st, (inc is listed in glossary as ( k1,yo,k1) in st-2sts increased) k1, p2, k1 tbl, p2, k1, k3tog, k1, p2, k1 tbl, p2:rep from*once more, end k1,inc in next stitch, k1,p1.
Did you happen to try knitting this? increasing by 2 and tbl are new terms for me but I have checked videos and resource books and I think I am doing things correctly. Maybe I am just losing my place when I am knitting? Anyway pretty frustrated right now. Thanks for replying! I appreciate it.

Just do it st by st, actually, when you've finished a row and it doesn't come out right, go back to the beginning and name the sts, sometimes you can find out where you're off easier that way.

So you name them p, inc, (which is 3 sts), k, 2 p, twisted knit, 2 p, k, dec, k, p 2, twist k, 2p, k, dble inc, k, 2 p, twist knit, etc and the last 6 sts are k dble inc (3) k p.

Hello, I'm Amanda and currently live in NW AR in the US. I knit, crochet, do metal work, beading, sewing, embroidery, tatting, calligraphy, drawing, etc. I'm learning how to spin (but don't have the cash for the stuff, so I'm just doing it on my leg, with a wire coat hook) am reading up on bobbin lace and netting... basically, I want to learn it all, I suppose. There's some drive in me for that... just can't explain it... :: twitch ::

Hi Amy,

I live in Greenfield, met you once at Webs, when you were laughing and said I was the only person who recognized you.

Have been away from all the knitting sites for a while. Here I am now praying to find instructions on K1B.

Thanks for all you do!!

Hi from North Yorkshire, UK
I started knitting a few months ago and after a pile of scarves, I'm ready to try something a bit harder. Your videos are great - detailed and slow enough for me to follow - I wish I'd seen them when I first started! My main problem now I've discovered knitting on the internet, is how to navigate through so many choices... so I look forward to joining the online community and throwing my questions into the forum
