StitchSaver™ Row Checker
"It is hard to make a mistake with our unique complimentary Row Checker. It helps you keep track of stitch count row-by-row for each section of the pattern, plus all increase and decrease shaping. With check off boxes for each row you can put this project aside for a week, a month or a year and return to the exact spot where you stopped."
For your convenience, we’ve collected definitions for abbreviations, links to tutorial videos that may make knitting your project easier and more fun, as well as guides to techniques and tailoring. Visit the Knitting Help page on our website.
If you want the fun of creating a truly unique tie, Brad is the one for you. The concept for this two-colored interwoven creation is simple. The strip of the tie that is typically hidden behind the wider portion in front is showcased when laced through six small horizontal slits. The seed and linen stitches are combined with what are in fact extended buttonholes resulting in a tie that is fun to knit. The color change occurs under the collar, so the result is intriguing and the person who wears it ends up with a delightful conversation piece hanging from his neck…or yours.
Brown Sheep’s Cotton Fine, 80% Pima Cotton, 20% Merino Wool
The cotton makes for a cooler garment while the wool provides more resilience. It has a wonderful hand whether working with it or wearing it.
