Knitting 102: Some Cast Ons and Bind Offs

This video was made for my Knitting 102 students. It has demos of 3 cast ons and 3 bind offs: Old Norwegian cast on, Sewn bind off, Provisional cast on, Lace bind off, Cable cast on, Jeny’s Surprising Stretchy bind off (knit stitch version only. No audio; this is a supplement to in-class instruction.

Knitting video demo: The Knit Stitch

A demonstration of how to do the knit stitch, with yarn held in the right hand (English style). There is no audio; simply follow along as the knit stitch is demonstrated, very slowly, twenty times. I refer to and demonstrate the 2nd stitch pause, in which the knitter makes the 2nd stitch of the row and then slightly cinches it up, which helps control the loops that can appear on the edge of the knitted piece.
