Breien is leuk!

Op deze pagina een aantal technieken die ik vaak gebruik, maar die ik altijd weer even op moet zoeken :).

In 't engels, ik ben nu eenmaal handiger met engelse breitermen dan met nederlandse.

The tubular cast on for K1P1 rib looks fabulous, and I love using it. It's described in Catherine Lowe's book The Ravell'd Sleeve (available directly from Lulu).

The way to avoid that horrible stairstep bind-off!

Increases and decreases can be done in several ways, and they don't all look the same. Choose one and stick to it for each project!

The top-down set-in sleeve in knitting is a brilliant technique. I've used it several times now, tweaking as I went along. Here are my notes.

There are tons of ways to make a buttonhole in knitting, but I usually end up making the same one every time: Margaret Fisher's. It's relatively easy to do, although it can be a bit fiddly (because I'm a pretty tight knitter).

Decreasing evenly across a row - I usually think about this until my head hurts, and end up writing out all the stitches and all the decs. Even then I get mistakes on long rows.
Surely it must be possible to catch it in a formula and get it right each time?
