3YOK - LOSANGA SPECIAL STITCH this technique creates a really interesting cluster with yarnovers. The manoeuvre is worked over 5sts. To start, you'll want to pass the 3rd, 4th & 5th stitches over the 1st & 2nd stitches as shown. Pass them over the first 2sts & let them drop. Next you'll want to yo, K1, yo, K1, yo where the first knit stitch is worked into what was the 1st stitch and the 2nd K1 is worked into what was the 2nd stitch. In this example the final yarnover is wrapped the other way 'cos the stitch following the 3YOK in the Losanga pattern is a P1 (which is shown); if you're working this stitch cluster in a different pattern and its followed by a K1 then wrap the yarnover the same as the first two, to ensure the yarn is in the correct place for the next pattern of the pattern. Its actually a lot easier to knit than it may read! Having spent a month with LoveKnitting to raise funds for Women's International 'Losanga' goes on general release today, on all the usual places, and I'll pop in a link to this video so you can find it easily. Yarn is #bloomsburydk, curated by @feller.carol & available from @theyarncollective/@loveknitting. Needles are my Lykke short tips which I adore - I got them last year from @ayarnstory Enjoy! #woollywormhead #woollywormheadhats #learnitwithwoolly #knitvideo #knittechnique #knittech #instavideo #videoinsta #igvideo #learntoknit #knittingvideo #videotutorial

ELONGATED STITCH PATTERN, or 'EMBROIDERY STITCH' for my 'Lifted' Hat pattern. This is only the one part of the stitch: K1L, K2, K1L. As you approach the point in the pattern where the K1L is to be worked, find the centre point between the next 2sts and go down 2rows - it's the space between the k2tog & ssk, 2rows down. You create the first K1L by putting your needle into this space and making a knit stitch - don't forget to pull the yarn right through so that it doesn't pucker the fabric. Then K2, then repeat the K1L by putting your needle back into the same space that you did the first K1L and knitting as you did before. All of our stitches are joined by loops or horizontal strands between the stitches, and you're using this point to create the elongated stitches. Going down 2rows helps add effect to the stitches (you could go down further but keeping an even fabric tension will be an issue, unless that's your aim!) And a few rows before the K1L rounds you will decrease stitches to make way for these extra stitches. If you find it awkward on your hands, a crochet hook would be a useful tool! • #woollywormheadtutorials #woollywormhead #learnitwithwoolly #knittingdesign #knittechnology #knittechniques #knittech #instavideo #igvideo #videotutorial #videoknitting #knitsnotbots #knittingelongatedstitches #woollytutorial #instagramvideo #igtutorial #igknittingtutorial #igknitters #videoknits
