    • This is going to be one of my topics soon! Scan through it before you get started and note any terms or techniques you don’t know or recognise. Then, go on YouTube or elsewhere on the Web to learn how to do the technique. Bookmark it, too, so you can find it when you need it.

      I find I have an easier time with patterns and charts when I block out the row/round above and below. That way I only see one round/row at a time. Hope that helps! 🙂

  1. Love your blog…I really want to learn how to knit, I already crochet so I’m hoping it won’t be too hard to knit. The videos are great by the way!
