Love your videos I am stuck on this For row 2, do I knit 14? Someone told me that it means 14 setsbrbrbrCast on 37 sts brRow 1 and all WS rows Knit brRow 2 K14, work (k1, yo, k1) in next st, k7, work (k1, yo, k1) in next st, k14 - 41 sts brMY DILEMMA br1 Are the (k1, yo, k1) worked in one stitch? I've tried "next stitch and ended with a total of 39 stitches I have a tendency to overthink when it comes to knitting br Am I supposed to end up with 41 stitches, when I complete this row? If that's the case, I end up with only 39 stitches What am I doing wrong?

Your videos are amazing! I'm new to the knitting world and just started a first project a month ago! I was afraid to try knitting, but your videos have made it so easy to get into and now I can't put my needles down! Thank you for your expertise and I look forward to seeing more videos to learn from!
Comment from : Alicia Iacovetta

This was incredibly helpful, thank you so much!
Comment from : agentswarley

what does it mean if a pattern says P 0 [1 0] or K 0 [0,1]? does it mean not to purl or knit? if you don't knit or purl, what happens? thank you for all your videos!

Hi Norman, I am making a racerback knitted tank and this will be my first time to knit something more substancial than a dishcloth ! the pattern starts from the bottom up and the first set of decreases that lead to the waist decreases 4 stitches every 6 rows Maybe its is my inexperience but was under the guise that these decreases were suppose to lean toward the center front/center back the decreases in my pattern are the opposite - leaning towards the side seams I am hesitant - does this sound like it would be correct or maybe it is a typo in the pattern and - if the lean should go the opposite way will it mess up my tank top to have these decreases leaning in the opposite directions? before I knit more I am just hopefully trying to get a more experienced opinion on it - Many Many thanks for your help Norman !

Vivienne Clarke
Ok NormanI hope you can help me with this!! I have no clue how to read a chart Annnnnd my 8 year old grand daughter wants me to knit her a specific sweater with a unicorn on it,done in intarsia(and I'm also new to knitting intarsia lol) So I bought the yarn(sparing no expense because nothings too good for her!),,I bought the pattern,,looked it over more closely and discovered that even tho it originally looked like it was written instructions,the unicorn part is only as a chart😯🤦‍♀️brFor me,reading a chart is as confusing as doing basic math My brain just doesn't grasp the concept! I'm left handed and 100 right brained!! brI'm counting on you Norman to get me thru this😂 And more importantly, my Beautiful grand daughter is counting on you!!😂brLol,I know,the pressures on,but if anybody can do it,YOU can!!brOk Nowon to watch the video🦄🤞🏻🙏🏻😄

Thank you for making another wonderful video! You are an exceptional knitter and teacher I like to keep my place in patterns with highlighter tape It's repositionable with no residue, able to be written on and comes in different colors For me, it is a wonderful tool for keeping track of where I am in a pattern I find it on Amazon Thank you again for helping to make a world full of wonderful knitters

Thank you for such a clear explanation of how to understand the new language of a knitting pattern When crocheting I do more following diagrams/charts so that section was most enlightening for me I will be watching this video a few times when I get ready to do an actual pattern I will recommend it to others in my FB groups

Hi Norman, I've been knitting on and off for the past 10 or so years, but your videos have really helped me get so much better these past few months Do you know how to knit a flat circle? I've picked up crochet for the sole purpose of making a flat circle, but if there's a way to do it with knitting, I'd like to learn how!

Nicole Lafontaine
Great theme ! Your cable sweater looks perfect on you, did YOU knit it ? Thanks for your knitting glossary, it is quite useful to have all the abreviations together I really appreciated your explanation of the use of asterisk, parenthesis, brackets, italic in different circumstances, it is nice to know the standard use of these Personally I like to hightlight my size instruction on the pattern, rather than cross the other size instruction It helps if I knit the pattern again for someone else in another size, then I don't have to print the pattern again, I just highlight this new size with a different colorbrI loved your last comment about the stitch count at the end of a row being the RESULT of the knitted stitches in that row rather than the stitch count before knitting that row, so many people make that mistake !!! Thanks again for one more great instructional video !

Crystal WarElk
Thank you for including the part about stitch counts! brI’ve ran into several patterns that in their instructions include the stitch connected to a M1 or Lifted increase as part of that instruction and it confused the heck out of people all the time! Especially beginners who have never seen it that way before brbrFor example if you had 4 stitches and they want you to add 2 stitches brsome write it as: brK1, M1, k2, M1, k1 (6)brBut others write it as brK1, M1, k1, M1 (6)brbrSo it’s very important to read through each line to figure out how that designer handles their increases I really wish more designers would stick with standard practices

I know there are subtle differences in patterns, depending on where the pattern came from This is another reason to read the pattern thoroughly before startingbrbrAlso, as an experienced knitter, I don't knit as many swatches as I used to, but if I'm working with an unfamiliar yarn, it's essential For example, I'm a big fan of acrylic yarn made by a particular company, so I already know my gauge with it, depending on needle size If I'm using acrylic yarn from a different company, I will make a swatch using the suggested needle size, because I've learned the hard way that my gauge can be off by a lot once I begin

Gwendy Rose
As a crocheter who is now knitting, reading knit patterns is very similar to the way you read crochet patterns, which is VERY helpful! You just have to get used to the different "jargon" used :) However, charts are still a MAJOR issue for me no matter if they are crochet or knit! It's just WAY too easy for my eyes to skip rows on charts or to misunderstand the symbols used (So far, knit symbols seem a bit easier to read, but I'm not very experienced with those just yet) What I typically end up doing is taking the time to convert the charts into written patterns that I can follow Sometimes this helps, but sometimes it just complicates things However, after watching your explanations, I will trying again to use a chart in the future :) Thanks for the explanations and the encouragement Great video as always!

Rose Ferrara
Norman, what makes my head hurt is when a pattern states all these instructions then `work in pattern' Another on is `at the same time'🤪
Comment from : Rose Ferrara

Gale Em
Anything in brackets should be marked with stitch markers A lot of time, this is where shaping happens It also helps novice knitters keep track of stitches

I know how to read easy patterns, but when the pattern isn't written in regular rows like in the entrelac patterns then i have problemsi also know most of the abbreviations for most patterns, if not I first read the abbreviations and glossariesbrNext row (finishing row): what happened to the rows between row 2 and the finishing row?brIn the entrelac pattern i see at least 5 (five) blocks, each block has at least 12 rowsthis is the stuff that confuses mewhy are they only mentioning two rows? brPlease help, i wished i could send a picture of what i have sofar done, and where i am stuck (On your entrelac video you show somehow you started that purple row from the right on the left side)brThat is the area i have trouble withstarting from the middle, so to speakthat is where i am lost Please help🤔

I've been binge watching your tutorials and have enjoyed them all immensely! I have a question, please In one of your videos, you mentioned your knitting journal Can you tell us a little more about that? I'd like to document my knitting journey, but am unsure quite how to organize it What have you done that you'd recommend a beginner like myself would benefit from, especially years from now after (hopefully) a long knitting journey? Thank you for your time and consideration!

Marina Balsamo
Dear Norman, another wonderful tutorial of yours! Thank you! I have a question: what does a “bundle” mean? I’ve found this description in my pattern, but…is there another way to describe it?brOr is there a tutorial somewhere ? I just don’t get it! Here’s what the pattern says : brbundle: With yarn in back, slip 2 sts purlwise to right needle, bring yarn to the front and slip both sts back to left needle You will have 1 wrap 􏰂 repeat until you have 3, ending with the wrapped sts on the right needle Any help would be sooooo appreciated !

Bonnie Bozec
Another excellent podcast Norman I started knitting at a very young age I was innocent about needle size, type of wool and the resulting type of fabric I attempted to knit socks without this knowledge I was fearless in my ignorance The first sock I knit would’ve fit a giant! My grandmother then explained to me about needle size and weight of yarn My grandmother lived far away and wasn’t easily accessible when I had questions I would’ve been so happy as a young inexperienced knitter to have had access to a video such as yours Take care I hope you’re having a wonderful day

Darlene Farmer
Hi Norman Great video! I have a question What should you do when a particular pattern request that a gauge swatch be knitted but the pattern does not provide gauge knitting style instructions? Thank so much for a great instructional video!
Comment from : Darlene Farmer

Len Araullo
Very clear Tutorial, very helpful for all beginners English/American vs German patterns have slight differences (noticed it as I switched from English to German sometimes) I usually read the pattern from beginning to end to have an idea Then I mark the size to make for me to make it easier before starting the project If any special stitches I check it out in You Tube You are correct, gauge is very important What I love in your channel
