This section will include posts on casting on and off, increasing and decreasing stitches, experimenting with samplers, creating and using a cast-on rag, making a tension square etc. These techniques will enable you to knit a range of garments/items that I will post in the Knitting Patterns section.
Before you start, make sure you machine and yarn are set-up correctly. Keep your operation manual handy to ensure that your settings are correct.
I will link to any videos that will help you.
