This is the fifth and final podcast in a series about how I knit the Nahanni River vest designed by Betts Lampers and published by Simply Shetland. In it I show how I knit backwards for the short rows, how I reinforced and cut the steeks and how I picked up and knit the stitches for the arm holes and neck band. I also show you the final garment, and talk about the lessons I learned while knitting it.
This is the fourth podcast in a series that shows how I am knitting the Nahanni River sleeveless pullover, and describes techniques used in knitting the Nahanni River project: casting on for a steek, decreasing in colour work, and using symmetry to spot mistakes. It shows progress at the end of the second vertical pattern repeat.
In this, my third podcast, I describe how I used the charts to knit the Nahanni River vest, how I knit stranded colour work, how I knit the corrugated rib (also known as cartridge rib), and how I correct mistakes as I go along. I also talk about the progress I have made with the project. Future podcasts will discuss steeking the project and finishing the garment.
In this, my second podcast, I describe what I found out from my gauge swatch for a Fair Isle knitting project – the Nahanni River. I also explain how I cast-on in the round using the twisted knit half-hitch cast-on and a marker thread to help me count stitches and avoid twisting the cast-on edge. Future podcasts will show my progress as I knit the project.
In this,my first podcast, I describe my though processes in preparing to knit a Fair Isle knitting project – the Nahanni River. I discuss the yarn, tools, and techniques that I will need to use. I also discuss how I chose the size to make and how I made a gauge swatch . Future podcasts will show the results of that gauge swatch and follow my progress as I knit the project.
