Secrets of Ribbing without a Ribber

Without a ribber, knitting knit and purl stitches on a flat bed machine takes a bit of work.

By re-forming individual stitches you can include purl stitches in your knitting to create ribbing, textured stitch patterns .. even cables.


Improve your knitting with hand manipulated ribbing. It takes a bit of patience and comfort with your tools, but the extra effort is well worth it!

Let it Roll!

Rolled hems are a quick and easy way to put a casual hem on a sweater. The rule of thumb is to gradually change the tension so the roll is more pronounced. Is this true?
Watch as we experiment, you may be surprised at the results.
Also included are instructions for a professional finish for rolled hems.


Dog bones, Cut 'n Sew and a Man's pattern

Check out the new garter carriage stitch pattern from Karen Kuranda!  She calls it dog bones and it creates a beautiful basketweave texture.

We used this stitch for our newest Man's pattern in Dynamic Format.  The pattern is a basic drop shoulder style pullover. This is sure to please the man in your life!  

Make it plain or fancy with your own stitch pattern. Work a cut 'n sew neckline or work the included shaping. Use your own choice of yarns - ANY YARN - ANY MACHINE - ANY GAUGE!
