I was halfway knitting my Christmas snowman and suddenly mom told me she wanted to learn knitting! So putting the snowman aside, I design this scarf for her. Scarf is the easiest to knit as you don’t need to join any parts together. You can knit a really simple scarf only knowing 3 skills, CO (cast on), knit and BO (bind off). But having said this, mom wanted a pretty scarf so I design something a little more complicated but still relatively easy for her to start as her first project.

The scarf has lace borders, but not too feminine so a guy could also wear it. It’s easy to knit and will be suitable for beginners. Plus, I will also include video tutorials below so anyone can follow with ease :) We use 2 balls of yarn (50g each), so if you have 100g balls then you only need 1 ball.

Difficulty Level:
Very Easy Difficulty

Finishing:
I leave approx 1.2meter of yarn then I start the finishing. You may want to measure your remaining yarn as we all have different tension.

To finish, you need to start on the right side of the fabric (the odd rows). This means you have just finished doing your Purl rows.

Row 13-18: Repeat Row 1 & 2 three times.

Row 19: BO

Cut any remaining yarn you have left over and weave in ends. The lace border tends to curl up, so block the materials after it’s finished to get a nice flat surface.

Tadaa! you have finished. Happy knitting!

I know making a clutch handbag is not something I usually do, but I want to give Mom a present. This purse is very easy to make as it uses basic knitting techniques (knit & purl). I actually find I spent most of my time sewing the parts together at the end. It’s quite a long process when making up, I didn’t expect it to be honest, but I am so happy that it’s all done!

I love knitting with Cleckheaton Perfect Day 8 ply, must admit I just fell in love with the yarns when I first set my eyes on them. The texture feels really nice to the touch and the colours are just fabulous! I used two different needles size as I don’t have Double Pointed Needles at 4mm size (well, just have to make do with what we have the best we can! ;) )

Making up Step-by-Step: (*Important* Before you join the pieces together, block all knitted materials. To block, simply spray lightly with cold water and block materials into shape and pin them to a towel and leave them to dry.)

Knitted purse after blocking

After blocking, the materials will lay straight making it much easier to seam

  1. Once dry, weave the top decoration leftover yarn.
  2. Sew button to the top decoration (use regular colour thread)
  3. Stitch the top decoration to the main body. Use running back stitch. (use metallic gold thread)
  4. Cut lining fabric, match the width to the main body, but add 1.2cm to the length to allow for the zipper.
  5. Cut fabric lining

    Cut fabric lining, increase the length slightly to allow for zipper.

  6. Overlock the edges of the fabric lining so the materials doesn’t fray. (Use sewing machine if you know how to) (use regular colour thread)
  7. Sew the zipper to the fabric lining. Use running back stitch. (Use sewing machine if you know how to) (use regular colour thread)
  8. Sew the fabric lining to main body. Use running back stitch. Being careful when stitching so the threads doesn’t show in the inside lining as you want your stitches to be invisible. (use metallic gold thread)
  9. Clutch Handbag, join the fabric lining to the main body

  10. Sew the sides of fabric lining shut. Use running back stitch. (use regular colour thread)
  11. Sew the fabric lining shut using running back stitch

  12. Sew the sides of main body shut, careful not to sew the lining together. Use running back stitch. (use metallic gold thread)
  13. Sew main body shut, care not to sew the fabric lining

  14. Knit i-Cord, then make a loop to the side of the bag, secure.

Note: For all regular thread, I use 2 strands. For all metallic thread I use 4 strands.

How to Knit a Scarf: Easy Basic Beginner Tutorials

AmareeLis How to Knit Video Tutorials, Knitting Tips Leave a comment   easy knitting patterns, free knitting patterns, knitting tips, learn how to knit tutorials, straight needles, very easy knitting patterns
It’s been a while since I post beginner tips on the site. I have three knitting projects ongoing that I really want to share next, but they are not finished yet.

Well, actually two are finished but I still haven’t got a chance to organise the information together! One is going to be a really massive post (heck, it’s the biggest post I’ve ever done so I really need to buy some time). How I wish I can stop time…

Well, since I can’t, I thought posting these videos might be useful for anyone who wish to learn how to knit :) (and hopefully.. just hopefully it can keep you all entertained while I am finishing up my next knitting patterns post).

Well if that’s not working, I just hope reading this post will at least put a smile on your face.

Knitted Mouse holding a flower, how to knit

So for now, I am going to attach two basic beginner tutorial videos, which happens to be the most fundamental skills in knitting. I posted a how to tie a slip knot tutorials a while back and with all these three knowledge, you pretty much ready to start your first knitting project. All you need is a ball of yarn and a pair of straight knitting needles (use large straight needles for a starter as it will be easier to see what you are doing), so what are you waiting for? Let’s get started! ;)

Tutorials: How to Backwards Loop Cast on in Knitting (Single Cast On)

Now, there are a lot of different ways you can cast on, but this is the easiest and fastest way ever. You will be using one needle and one hand to do the casting (instead of two needles), so it’s perfect for beginners. They say pictures speak a thousand words so let me just show you the video:

Tutorials: How to Knit


After you successfully tie a slip knot and cast on, it’s time to begin knitting (wohoo here comes the fun part)! So what do you do from here?

How to Knit a Basic Beginner Scarf:

To knit a basic beginner scarf, first you cast on as many stitches you want. This will be the width of your scarf. Then, all you have to do is knit until the end of the row.

Well how do you when you have reach the end? Easy, it’s when all your stitches have been transferred from your left needles to the right needles.

Finished Knitting a Row, All stitches are on Right Hand Needle

This is what it looks like when you have finished knitting a whole row. All stitches are on your right hand needle.

So when there is no more stitch remaining on your left needle, simply hold your right needles (the one with all the stitches) on your left hand, grab your other needle and begin knitting again!

Hold the needle with all the stitches on your left hand to begin knitting again

Hold the needle with all the stitches on your left hand to begin knitting again

How easy was that?

This is what it looks like when you have knitted a few more rows

This is what it looks like when you have knitted a few more rows. I have only cast on 7 as a quick example. But if you are making a scarf, do cast on a lot more to increase the width of the scarf. Simply keep knitting to increase the length of the scarf.

I hope this tutorials help you a little bit more. Welcome to knitting!

To get you started, I have put together knitting needles and yarns that you may like to help you for your first project (choose size 9-11 needles for the bulky yarn):

Here comes last minute Halloween knit ideas! Well, you know Halloween usually full of scary stuffs, but what if you don’t want it to be too scary for the little ones? Try knitting cute candy floss monster, it’s cuddly and adorable (and you can also teach the kids not to forget brushing their teeth or candy floss monster will come and get them!). This cotton candy floss monster knitting pattern is very easy to make.

For the mouth, I use garter stitch and different yarn to highlight it. The mouth is knitted in one go as you are knitting the body (yeap, it saves time and headache from having to embroidery later on)

Cute Colorful Candy Floss Monster free knitting patterns

For the yarn, I chose Lincraft Entice for the main body and pink non hairy yarn for the mouth to give it contrast. I just love love LOVE

. It’s soo soft to the touch and has the hairy look fitting for candy floss and monster (Rawr!) If you are making this for babies, please check the yarn is safe as I couldn’t find any information online whether this yarn will be suitable for baby or not.

I have included 2 instructions, one to knit on straight needles or to knit in the round. You can choose whichever you want to do. Obviously, the advantage of knitting in the round is that you have less seaming to do in the end, thus you finish quicker ;) . But if you are just starting out, you may want to try knitting in straight needles as it’s very easy to do!

Pirate pig Oink! cute free knitting patternsAhoy! Here comes Free Accessories time! I was inspired to knit some cute sunglasses for the recently finished Sweet Carrot & Cool Carrot. But once they are done, my little boy started playing and put them on my other finished knitted projects — and the best part is that they work with other toys too! Also, if you make just half of the black sunglasses, it will become a pirate eye patch (yes they are really versatile!). I leave a long tail for the ends so I can just tie it up around the toys, but if you want it permanent, you can sew them on the sides of the face.

Finished Size: approx 5.5cm cube. 7cm tall. 9cm tail long (Please note that this size is made with the needles & yarn specified below, different yarns and needles size will produce different results)

Facial Features:
scraps of black yarn for the eyes, pink yarn for the nose and brown thread for face embroidery.

You can purchCubic Cat white Persian catase this Cubic Cat pattern designed by Carmen Perez D. in her blog. This pattern is super cute and very easy to make, the skills required are pretty basic. As long as you know how to knit and purl, then you will have no problem in making it. Don’t get freaked out just yet with the term St st (Stockinette stitch) as it simply means you knit one row to the end, then you purl another row to the end. At the time when I was making it, I made a mistake in choosing my yarn (the cat body is slightly bloated since the Panda yarn weight is much lighter than Lincraft Entice). Future note: select a similar weight yarn when attempting to join bodies together.

With the face, I had trouble finding cat eyes / nose in shops. Lincraft had limited range and the only way for me to get them is to purchase from online shops in the USA  — which means 5 weeks wait in the post! Hence I thought this will be a good chance to attempt my own face embroidery.

I was looking at photos of Persian cat and wanting to make my cubic cat looks similar. Lincraft Entice is the yarn I choose to produce the fur-like effect, it is a pretty interesting yarn to use  though due to the hairy nature it can get really tiring on the eyes when you knit. When done, I used an old tooth brush to brush all the hair, this brings out all the hairy thread that got stuck in between and creates a really nice feel to your finished cat.

If you like this cat, please support Carmen by purchasing the pattern. Happy Knitting! ♥

I finished this hat two days ago, but haven’t got a chance to take a photo of it til now. This hat is my first knitting project (I did this one before the Bunny Nugget) and I am really glad I did! Even though it took so long to finish as I get bored easily doing repetitive task, Knitting this hat really helped me practice learning knitting. It’s quite simple so this pattern is really good for beginners.

Felig copying me

He immediately grab my mom’s mobile phone and start copying what I did

I got this hat pattern originally from the HubPages, but I heavily modified it to look like what it is now. Adding an extra colour was intentional as I was wanting to learn how to change colour in knitting, but having an extra large yellow patch with Tigger sewn on was definitely not. The yellow patch was originally done to cover up my mistake as I didn’t use gauge (let alone know what it was) so the hat was ended up being too small to fit! Seeing it’s my first project, I didn’t bother to record what I did so I unfortunately couldn’t give you the modified pattern here. However, feel free to knit the original pattern found on HubPages :)

As final touch I purchased the Tigger applique (a Winnie the Pooh character) from Lincraft and sew it on the blank patch. I gave the hat to my 3yr old son, who happily wear it. But, getting him to stand still while I took his photo was another thing…

Finally got a shot of him, though it’s a little blurry since he won’t stop moving!
