Hello everyone! I'm Kendra Nitta from missknitta's studio. I'm a handknits designer, and my knitting patterns have been featured in Jane Austen Knits, the One Skein Wonders series, Knitcircus, Knitty, and many other books and magazines.
Today, I'm excited to be sharing a brand-new CraftFoxes How-to and a giveaway to celebrate the new pdf edition of my fingerless mitts pattern, M is for...! My CraftFoxes How-to teaches you what to do when your knitting directions say to work increases "in pattern." Designers use this phrase when they want the piece to have a uniform look, like with the all-over ribbing in the M is for... mitts.
Don't let this happen to you! Click over to my How-to to demystify working increased stitches "in pattern," using the M is for... mitts as an example. (Psst! In case you don't know how to increase yet, a great resource for learning how to work whichever increase is specified in your pattern is KnittingHelp.com.)
I hope enjoy Knitting How To: Increasing in Pattern. And be sure to keep an eye on my website, missknitta's studio, in the coming months — in addition to releasing the M is for... mitts as a pdf, I also have two brand-new designs appearing in an upcoming book by the fabulously talented Sarah Barbour of Rope Knits, due out this summer! Happy knitting!
And now for the giveaway . . .
