The year of the sweater is well under way (how many have you completed?!) and it is a great time to stock up on sweater patterns while our big BOGO sale is on! Here at TCK we love a good tutorial, and we wanted them to be easier to find so we have re-vamped our help page!
Since there is a lot of sweater knitting going on, we thought we would point you in the direction of our fabulous sweater specific tutorials. If you are feeling daunted by your very first sweater or are looking for a challenge in steeking we have got you covered! Here are a few of the highlights:
Our 2 free sweater patterns from the Simple Collection, Harvest and Flax are among our most popular sweater patterns. If you have never knit a sweater before I highly recommend starting with Flax. It is a simple and straightforward pullover, knit from the top down so you can try it on as you go. No seaming to worry about, and worsted weight yarn knits up quick!
If it is a cabled yoke you crave, Antler is the answer. A coworker of my husbands just had a beautiful baby girl so I will be casting one on tonight (I think this is my 6th…maybe 7th!). Our tutorial takes you step by step through bottom up sweater construction.
Looking for a challenge? We also have tutorials to go with our Clayoquot cardigan. One on choosing your pallet for colourwork (a great place to start before you head to the yarn shop), and one on steeking for when that scary moment comes!
Our new help page also includes links to all of our technique tutorials. Unsure of how to work an ssk? Need to work a lace chart? Curious about the smocking stitch? We have tutorials for that! If you have any requests just leave a comment on the blog and we will take your suggestions under advisement!
