Chinese Wave Stitch on a Knitting Loom

Chinese Wave Stitch

So I’m officially obsessed. The Chinese wave stitch is beautiful. I can tell you that as much as I tried I could not get a picture that would do justice to this stitch. It is thick and soft, lacy and warm, feminine but man friendly. Put in simple terms – I love it ! I’m hope you will too.
I have so many plans for this stitch. My first project will be for a washcloth. I love to give washcloths with homemade soaps.  The pattern will be available on Patreon and at my store shortly:

The basic basket weave scarf is great pattern for a quick and easy gift. If you start early you can finish the project in a day.

Avoid Knitting Ladders On Knitting Looms

A few of my followers have asked me to show them how to avoid knitting ladders. Ladders happen when you have stitches that are more loose than the rest of the fabric.  They cause an ugly seam down your hat. After finding these on a hat you’ve been working on for several hours is very disappointing.

Let me give you a few more good reasons why you should knit a swatch and how to make one.  ( Read More )…

How to Add Big Hair to Your Knit Doll

Doll Hair Technique Quick Video Tutorial

Big Hair Knit Doll

I love big hair on my dolls, in fact the puffier the better. If you’re like me then I have a great video tutorial for you. It’s quick and easy just 5 minutes and you’re off to make your knit doll look fabulous.

By the way,  this is an excellent way to recycle yarn scarps. First you use some to stuff the doll then use the rest for awesome wild hair.  I love it when nothing is wasted.

Note that you don’t need any experience and you can do this any knit doll new or previously knitted. One thing I do want you to keep in mind is that although the video is quick the project is not. Personally I found the task therapeutic.

I discovered the perfect hack and you already have the supplies needed to accomplish this little trick.

I also like the fact that you’re only using the knit and purl. Nothing elaborate or complicated. Keep in mind that like many of my stitch patterns it works best with a solid colored yarn and a small gauge loom.
