Example text

Here’s how: Drop the old color, insert your right-hand needle into the next stitch knitwise or purlwise, depending on what the stitch will be, and, leaving a 6-in/15-cm tail, grab the new yarn and use it to make the first stitch. Leave the yarn tails hanging for now (you can tie them in a temporary loose knot if you’d like); you’ll weave them in later (see page 48). Your stitches may look loose at this point, but don’t worry. When you hide the yarn tails, you’ll be able to correct this. Eventually you’ll want to make a project that isn’t a rectangle and requires some shaping, like a sweater or mittens.

Lay the pieces flat on a padded surface out of direct sunlight, patting them gently to your desired measurements (usually given in a schematic illustration in the pattern). Using rust-proof pins, pin the damp fabric down and allow it to dry. STEAM BLOCKING Place a damp cloth over each piece, and carefully run a steam iron just above the fabric. Always check the yarn label first to be sure that it can take the heat. Never touch a hot iron directly onto your knitted fabric or else you might damage it by flattening it or melting it!

YARN Lucky for us, companies offer a fantastic array of yarns from all over the world, many of which can be found online. Before you start any project, be sure to read the yarn label, which contains important information. FIBER CONTENT Yarns can be made from all sorts of different fibers, from warm and cozy wools to silky cottons to workhorse machine-washable acrylics. Some yarns are blends of natural and man-made fibers and try to offer the best of both worlds. Since the way a knitted fabric feels is as important as how it looks, I suggest you experiment knitting with lots of different yarns to find the ones you love.
