Hello everyone! Just popping in here quickly to share this little video that we made at the shop last week. Mel and Louisa who work with me at Little Woollie Makes, recently both knitted beautiful cardigans, the pattern is called Otra Cardigan by Skeindeer Knits. we thought it would be fun to share the steeking process, as cutting our knits can seem very daunting! Steeking is a common way to create a cardigan when you are doing colour work knitting. It means that you can knit your cardigan on circular needles, all in the one direction (so no purl rows and going backwards and forwards like on straight needles) and you create a steeking seam that you can reinforce and cut once your garment is finished. Mel and Louisa also chat a bit about there yarn choices and knitting journey.
I hope you enjoy this video, it was fun to make!
Here is a link to the video on our YouTube channel if you'd like to see what else we have been up to. I am trying to make more videos, so even though there is not a lot there at the moment, there will be more coming!
