Crocheted Steek Video Tutorial

Published by Meghan at 11:03 am 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!

    Perfect timing. I’m working on my first sweater – a cardi knit in the round. I hadn’t realized why the purl stitches were necessary and that you needed to anchor the stitces from the reverse – so Thanks for the tutorial.

    Wow! I didn’t even know about this technique! And you make it look SO easy, I’m not afraid to try it at all! Thank you!

    Love it….Absolutely LOVE it!….You are such a natural teacher Meghan,
    I just finished a smocked jacket with a knitted button band, (so confusing),
    Now I know that my next sweater can be knit in the round, (sigh of relief).
    Thanks so much for sharing :)

    Thank you so much Meghan! This is the first steek video I’ve seen that CLEARLY explains how to do the initial anchoring stitch! I appreciate it!

    Thanks, Meghan! I’d heard of this technique, but it makes so much more sense being able to SEE it. I have to admit, my heart raced in a panic sort of way when I saw you snip those first few stitches. You’re so brave ;)

    Ok, I believe I could ACTUALLY do this! Thank you for posting the tutorial – I’ve been wanting to steek something for a long time but I needed a comprehensive video to work from. I still may go into my LYS and have my friend supervise the first time. ;-)
