Look, Ma! No row counters! In this video tutorial, Jen Arnall-Culliford teaches a genius method to keep track of when it’s time to increase or decrease. All you need is a string.
Imagine: never having to count rounds all the way back from the cast on, ever again.
We think this method would work just as neatly when knitting flat (back and forth). Finally, an easy way to knit two pieces the same length.
Something New to Learn About Cables
This video is a companion to Jen and Jim Arnall-Culliford’s book, Something New to Learn About Cables, which we carry in the MDK Shop, along with the yarn specified for the patterns in the book, Coop Knits Socks Yeah! DK.
Curious about the book? Here’s our rundown. To sum up, we love the Arnall-Culliford approach to learning knitting techniques by using a great project as a laboratory.
We’ve both knit our fair share of cables, but we learned tricks and techniques from this book that made light bulbs go off in our heads. As you will see in the videos that accompany the book, Jen’s calm, concise and confident presence is exactly what we need in a teacher.
