Knitting is all about the details. If you add or subtract a single stitch per inch you’ll drastically change the final measurement of a garment. An unnoticed dropped stitch will throw off the count for a stitch pattern. Following a pattern even means keeping notes of where you are, what you’ve done previously, and remembering what stitches you’ve used (was that a K2tog decrease or a SSK?).
Like I said, a lot of details. And sometimes knitters are afraid to tackle a bigger project because of all those details. But I gotta tell you, there’s nothing more satisfying than watching a sweater take shape on your needles. And sometimes the little details—like the way a collar gently curves up to meet your neck—are the best parts.
Knitprint is launching in just a few weeks and I want it to become your go-to place for knitting and crafting encouragement, inspiration, and most of all, confidence in yourself and your ability to tackle that tricky project you’ve been putting off! In the meantime, tell me what big project you’ve been working up the nerve to take on!
