I have closed my Etsy shop and put my crochet hooks aside for awhile. I have a pinky finger that is following the path my parents fingers have taken. It seems twisted and crocked fingers with bumpy knuckles just might run in the family and after a year of intense crocheting, I have seen a significant change in shape and discomfort.But I can still knit and have a couple of projects in the works.
The pattern in the scarf above is one of my favorites. It is worked in an easy 2×3 Rib Stitch making it so warm and snugly. There are many variations of the Rib Stitch and in a few days I’ll share a couple of patterns with you.
My mom is of German descent and she learned Continental Knitting (also called German or European Knitting). We do not throw the yarn as many people do.
Here is a terrific video demonstrating this method of knitting. If you are a crocheter, you will take easily to knitting this way. It is the way I knit and cast on.
