I have provided instructions for some of the knitting techniques used in my designs. Click on the link below to see the complete explanation. I'm assuming that you know how to cast on and bind off and how to do the standard increases (knit/purl in front and back) and decreases (knit/purl two together, ssk). Please note that these pages are not meant to be a comprehensive guide to knitting techniques. If you have any questions or comments, please send me an email and I'll respond within 48 hours or less.
