View Full Version : learning to knit longies, will it end badly? Yes!
I just have to share my talent. I'm knitting some longies for DD. No, I can't knit. I'm learning from instructions I found on Google (ah, modern times are a worry arent they?). So far ive got a ribbed band with no rib, lots of holes from dropped stitches, its a funny angle as extra stritches keep appearing, and I just discovered I'd gotten lost in the pattern and she now has an inch of inside-outness down one leg.
I'm still going to make her wear them though!
LOL I'm also a master at increasing stitches when I'm not meant to - no idea how I do it either! hahaha. As much as I'd like to learn how to knit properly, I think I'll leave the knitting to my mum for now :rolleyes:
Show us your efforts anyway when you're done! :yes:
Make sure when you are moving between a knit stitch and a purl stitch (or vice versa) that you take your yarn between your needles not over them....
Thats what I was doing when I first started, kept making heaps of new stitches and made a big mess...
Check out knittinghelp.com for video instructions :thumbsup:
Least your trying:D
I just asked my MIL to do mine for me:laughing:
Can't wait to see the result!!
:laughing: glad to hear you're enjoying it though, that's the important bit ;)
I drop less stitches with each thing I knit, so hope is in sight my dear, and I'm looking forward to seeing them!
(I've started the tinybirds longies, boy do they take a long time compared to a soaker!)
I want to make some longies, but I can't knit either!
So today I want and bought some wool and needles and I'm going to practice first on a scarf for DD :thumbsup:
I've done about 10 rows of it so far...the first 5 are a bit dodgy... a few holes :o
