Becoming a better knitter

It doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned knitter or a novice about to embark on your first project. Going back to basics is a great idea.

  1. Select good quality yarn

This step may seem obvious, but you’d be surprised at how many knitters overlook it. The same goes for choosing good quality materials for your projects. The better your material, the better your end product.

You will knit with yarn that is more durable, lasts longer and makes your knitting irresistible.

3. Stitch your stitching the same size

It is also important to maintain the same stitch size so that you do not use more yarn than necessary and your item will be the correct size for the intended use.

  1. Check your knitting

It is easy to lose yourself in the world of knitting, and completely forget about everything else. Knitting is similar to zen meditations and other practices that help you get into the zone.

It is important to occasionally step out of your comfort zone and check your work. This will prevent you from making mistakes or having to unravel and start again. Be sure to take regular breaks to check on your progress.

  1. Finish your row

We know that life can be hectic. You hear your phone ringing, the mailman arrives and your dog barks in excitement. You’re about to put down your knitting and answer the door. But wait! Are you done with your row yet?

There are numerous benefits to finishing your row and then putting your knitting down. It’s easy to lose track of where you were on your row when you’re working with a complex pattern. This can lead to messed up stitches. The tension of the needle can change when you pick it back up, resulting in an uneven row. You may lose track of the stitches that you were trying to count.

  1. Practice, practice and practice

What more do we need to say? Practice makes perfect.

As you knit more, your knitting skills will improve. Knitting is not a natural talent. 99% of success in knitting comes from dedication and practice. So be patient and tenacious and you’ll enjoy great results.
