Today is the first Tuesday blog post for my new tips and techniques project. Each Tuesday I will be posting a technical tip, based on questions I have received for my "Ask Jil" column in KnitSimple magazine. Let me know if you have any special questions!
Tip #1 One of the most important issues for perfect knitting is getting the correct gauge, or the correct number of stitches per inch and rows per inch. Always do your gauge swatch as instructed in the pattern. Check your gauge on your project after about four inches; if you're not getting your gauge begin again.
For a complete set of my tips and tricks, look for my latest book Jil Eaton's Knitting School: A complete guide to becoming a confident knitter.
