This month will feature twisted stitches, circular knitting and knitting with double points for the techniques. I had many requests for a patten using the RicRac Rib stitch I featured earlier in an email series so I decided to make that the focus of this month’s stitch pattern. It’s used as a trim in this RicRac Hat using the RicRac Rib stitch knit flat and joined with circular needles to complete the hat.
The videos this month include the long tail cast on, ricrac rib stitch pattern, joining for circular knitting, switching to double point needles and finishing the top of the hat as well as seaming the side seam with mattress stitch. I’ve also added a blooper just for fun from the filming sessions!
I’ll be making the onion cream tart for our meet-up. It uses ingredients you will probably have as staples in your home, so can be a quick meal to put together. It also works great as an appetizer.
