KNIT INTO THE ROW BELOW this is the stitch pattern used in my Muratura pattern, and Rainbow Warrior too. It's a variation of Brioche and it's easier to do than it sounds! Insert your needle into the loop below the next stitch on the needle. For this pattern, which is worked flat, the stitch below will be a ridge, as it's garter stitch based. Once you've inserted your needle as shown simply knit both loops together as if they're one stitch, then slip them off the needle together!

DROPPED STITCHES FOR ROSALIND we've updated an older IG video to show one way of closing off the dropped stitch cables in my Rosalind pattern. This pattern uses twisted stitches throughout and so this method does, too. You could easily not twist your stitches if you want to use this method in a different pattern, but you may also wish to use a different decrease method for closing the top (an SSK is used here to maintain twisted stitch cases to the DNA lozenges). Love dropped stitches! #learnitwithwoolly #instatutorial #instaknit #knitteachersofinstagram #droppedstitches #knittersofig #knittersgonnaknit #allthehats #woollyhats #woollywormheadtutorials #woollywormhead
CHANGING COLOURS IN SCOURIE we've put together this little clip to show one possibility for changing between the yarns at the short row points in my Scourie pattern. You don't have to do it this way & the best advice I can offer it to try a couple of methods & see what works best for you. I will say though that you don't want to pull the yarn too tight! Sure, you want to take up the slack but if you pull too tight you'll affect the other stitches around the short row point & it'll end up looking untidier... even tension is the key. Also, don't beat yerself up if there's a tiny hint of the other yarn at certain points in the short row forms - unless they're very loose they won't notice overall. . #woollywormhead #learnitwithwoolly #woollyhatseason #scouriepattern #instavideo #instatutorial #knittingvideo #knittech #twocolourwork #shortrowcolourwork #shortrowsftw
