No matter which class I’m teaching, I like to give my students a handout that covers increases and decreases and how to knit them. It is nice to have them listed all in one place.
I have labelled them as either right or left-leaning, which can be helpful in choosing the proper stitch, whenever your pattern doesn’t specify which increase or decrease to use.
So, here is the PDF for you. Enjoy!
Named these after my Aunt Teresa who is forever young. Also, I was a teenager in the ’80s and still think legwarmers are cool.
I suggest using double-points that are 7” or longer to comfortably accommodate the stitches over 3 DPNs.
The pattern is for one size but easily adjustable for height. You can take out or add length in any of the three sections. As long as you are consistent, it won’t present a problem. They are intended to hit at the top of the knee. But, that only matters in the sense that you want them to cling to your leg, and if they hit lower, they will be looser.
Cute little pumpkin. Can be used as a pin cushion or just a fall decoration. Little details make this a clean design.
This hat should fit an average woman’s head. It also has a lot of stretch, so even those of us who have larger heads can wear it comfortably. It’s a very easy lace pattern. You are only working the pattern stitch on one out of four pattern rounds, so it offers good mindless knitting.
