Lessons Learned While Knitting Longies
Every time I knit a pair of longies I learn a little something more about knitting.
It isn’t always a mind-blowing new technique but usually just a small something or other that helps me become a better knitter in the future.
A few lessons learned while knitting longies:
- Short rows are a thing of genius and essential for a good fit.
- Go down one or two needle sizes for the waistband.
- Go down one needle size for seed stitch cuffs.
- Knit one round in contrast color before changing needle size and beginning seed stitch pattern.
- Kitchener stitch~ Love it!
- Extended gusset + picking up extra stitches along gusset = wider leg
- Weaving in ends as you go saves a lot of finishing work at the end of a project!
- I don’t enjoy knitting i-cord but I do love the results!
