I just started teaching myself intarsia and practicing the technique with scrap yarn. Whenever I change from the old color to the new color, there is a bit of a hole between it. I try to get my stitches as tight as can be, but there is still a hole. What am I doing wrong?
I'm making the Brown Bag pattern on knitty's website. I already made the bag base now I need to start the bag body. The problem is, I don't know where! In the pattern it says to place a stitch marker at the end of the row. I did that. Now it says to pick up stitches on the adjacent side. What's the adjacent side? The short side closest to the needle point? The side away from the point of the needle? WHAT?
I made that for a TV in my family's house. Inspired by pickled_pepper's monitor cozy. It took a little less than a week to make. I thought it would make a great stashbuster for all the gray yarn I had but I ended up having to buy more to finish it
Yeah, another mohawk hat inspired by a post here on craftster. I used red wool and Paton's Shetland yarn for this. I tried it on but the colors didn't really suit me so I'm willing to give it up in a personal swap. PM me if interested
My friend knitted a hat from a punk knitting book and since I'm a crocheter, she wants me to put the mohawk on. I read the description in the book but I don't understand how to put the mohawk on. Could someone dumb down the instructions for me?
