A New Year, A New Stitch

I promised to share another spool knitting stitch with you so here it is!  If you're new to spool knitting make sure the check out my post on how to make your own Spool Knitter and you can go here to learn the basics of casting on and off and the beginner stitch.

I'll try to do some screen grabs below for those of you who aren't able to watch the videos, buy trust me, it makes much more sense in the video...

                        

                        


Steps:
1) Cast on as usual.

2) On your second section, loop your wool under and up through the wool on the front of the section.

3) Bring the whole section of wool up and off of the knitter.



4) Place the loop down on the knitter, it is now at the front of the section.




That's it, that's the stitch.  Just repeat that over and over on every section and you'll end up with a nice texture to your piece:



I made mine into a short tube and made a toque out of it, but there are so many other fun projects you can make with this.  Let your imagination run wild!




Dreaming of a day when I don't have to wear a toque!

I'm leaving the Spool Party tab open for one more month so that you can share your projects.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I'll be posting this at all the linky parties throughout the week
so make sure to check out all of the fun links on the linky party tab up top.

Did you notice???  I've harnessed the power of the linky and have reorganized all of my pages up top so that you can find projects and other posts easily.  Let me know if you like this new format.
