Online Video Course: The Knitting Doctor: Mistakes and How to Fix ThemArticle: #knittingdoctor
Take our online knitting class where you will learn how to get out of any knitting jam!
New knitters will learn the tools to fix their own knitting, and more experienced knitters will gain a deeper understanding of your stitches. We will begin to learn to 'read your knitting' and recognize common mistakes, and how to 'tink' (unknit). Then we will move onto learning how to pick up a dropped stitch in knit, purl, and garter and learn to fix a mistake in rib or any stitch pattern. We will also learn how to insert and rip down to a safety line, how to recognize and fix reversed stitch mounts and much more. Learn more about our education philosophy:
