It would be sooooo much nicer if you actually gave a pattern when you show a new stitch. like the one you just did with the cable why not show us what stitches you used throughout the whole row as it would be for a scarf ect.
1. We don’t have time to research a pattern that use each stitch on this site.
2. This is a technique stitch so it is meant to help people who encounter this stitch in a pattern and do not know how to do it.
3. This site is meant to inspire you to use these techniques and stitches in your own work.
I love this website .. I’d like to get all short demo on a usb .. so I could just play it anytime when I teach my daughters.. I had been knitting but have not done any for 20 years .. now I am re-learning to teach my now grown up daughters.
