Prep: Get some yarn and some knitting needles
Step 1: Cast on about 20 stitches
Step 2: Knit the 20 stitches back onto the other needle
(Optional - Keep repeating step 2 until you have a square. This is the garter stitch)
Step 3: Purl the 20 stitches back onto the other needle.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you have a square. This is the stockinette stitch.
Step 4: Bind off.
Congratulations! You have just knitted a square of either garter or stockinette stitch!
I read somewhere that the “swag bags” of goodies for celebrities at some of these awards shows are worth up to $80K.
In comparison, there’s a video being reposted that shows how to fill a backpack to help a person without a home for $20.
Just finished my husband’s iPad cover. Now, the big question: cast on a new project, or work on one of the several already underway that are sitting in my knitting bag?
Any tips? Tricks? Advice?
