    Crocheted Steek Video Tutorial

    Published by Meghan under knitting,Pattern,video

    So i’ve come to be a lover of knitting in the round and doing a steek for cardigans. Steeking is where you cut (gasp!shock!horror!) your knitting. the thing is, with some extra support before you cut, the sweater stays in one piece and you have a cardigan without having to purl all of those pesky wrong side rows.

    You have a few options when doing a steek.
    1. you can machine stitch the sweater on either side before you cut
    2. hand sew the sweater on either side before you cut
    3. crochet the sweater on either side before you cut.

    i’m a big fan of #3. i can do it while sitting on my couch, i don’t have to lug out the sewing machine or find a needle, and i love how neat and tidy the edge is when i make the cut. i know my stitches aren’t going anywhere, and i know that when i’m done, i’ll have a very nice clean line.

    you don’t need to really know how to crochet, but if you have some yarn and a crochet hook, you too can become a crocheted steek master!

    i couldn’t find any video tutorials of how to do a crocheted steek, so this last time i did a cardigan, i decided to film it and share that exhilarating snip with the world. i walk you through how to do the crochet, how to cut, and where to pick up stitches.
    with all this knowledge, you now can go forth and knit anything you’d like in the round!

    SO, i wanted to give you guys a heads up that i have planned some activity on here!
    first off, remember that contest i ran a couple months ago? well, i will FINALLY get names drawn and announce this afternoon.
    remember how i said i was going to do the video of how to use handcards? well i’m going to finally get that recorded.
    remember how i said i recorded the video tutorial of how to do a crocheted steek? well that video is mixing down RIGHT NOW and will be uploaded shortly to youtube for your viewing pleasure!
    how about that for customer service?!

    also, i’m hoping to start moving some things around on the shownotes page here to make things a little easier to navigate. like being able to search the site, and less clutter and whatnot.
    any suggestions?

    so, stay tuned! crochet steek tutorial coming up shortly!

    it’s like they KNOW.

    they KNOW when you had hoped to clean the front room a little.
    they KNOW when you got your hair looking okay and put on clean clothes.
    they KNOW when you got all your supplies together.
    they KNOW when you’ve had a script of points and lesson plans running through your head for the past few days.
    they KNOW when you have plans to do something special during their nap.
    they KNOW when you are about to hit record on the video camera.

    they KNOW.
    they KNOW, and they show you that they KNOW.
    they show you they KNOW by rebelling against taking their nap.

    they, being toddlers.
    more specifically:
    they, being owen.

    so much for recording that hand carding video today…
    they have other plans for us.
