Tips for Knitters

Problem:

The yarn on the cone you're using won't stay upright because there's only a little on it or it's unevenly wound, and it keeps flipping over.

Solution:

Place the cone over one of your large ribber weights. It should give it enough stability to stay up until the cone is empty


Technique:

How to get the perfect edge on your ribbing.

E-wrap the yarn from left to right on all needles according to pattern.Knit one row to the left, then transfer for 1x1 or 2x2 ribbing as desired, and then hang the comb and weights, and knit rib as usual. It's a great finish and looks good on either the knit or the purl side.
