Creative Knitting Video: One Stitch Pattern, Unlimited Options

If you haven’t had a chance to check out my latest how-to video, this is your last chance, because next week, the Autumn 2014 digital issue goes live on CreativeKnittingMagazine.com.

In the video below, I show you a clever bias openwork technique that you can use in a multitude of ways simply by changing needle size and yarn weights. Learn to be an adventurous knitter!

On the plate for next week, the online edition of the Autumn 2014 issue goes live, along with a comprehensive video, which includes a special tutorial for how to make the gorgeous Chock wrap/neckerchief, designed by Norah Gaughan for Berroco.

This is my little gift to you, so don’t miss it! I will share more details soon about the upcoming knitalong, and how you can take part on the Berroco Lover’s Ravelry group, so save the date!

The Best of the Blog: Learn a Stitch, Share the Love Stitch Block Series

Just in time for the weekend, here’s a re-run of my popular series: Learn a Stitch, Share the Love knitalong that I tag-teamed on with Tabetha Hedrick, the Creative Knitting online newsletter editor.

These washcloths are perfect for 3 good reasons:

  1. They are portable– pretty cool to take your passion with you everywhere you go, huh?
  2. Spend next to nothing or zero $$– dive into your stash, or purchase just one ball of yarn and go to town this weekend whipping out a bunch of these babies!
  3. No-brainer gifts– who wouldn’t love a colorful, handmade washcloth from you?

I’ve stated my case, now go get the first pattern here, then go here to read my first post in this four-part series, which was part of a popular knitalong that you can join at any time.

The weather will be gorgeous in most parts of the country this weekend, so get prepared so you can knit wherever your travels take you. Aren’t we so lucky to have a portable passion!

What’s on Kara’s Needles: It’s a Mystery!

Each week, I try to keep you up-to-date with what’s on my needles, but this week, it’s about what is “about” to be on my needles. I’m knee-deep in designing some new patterns for upcoming issues of Creative Knitting, and I’m really anxious to do something with the “Mystery Yarn” below. I will unveil what this gorgeous handpaint yarn is when the Spring 2014 issue goes live later this year. For now, I’ll keep you in suspense with a little bit of eye candy:
