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.

(De kleurcode en de mogelijkheid om erop te filteren hebben niets met breien te maken, maar zijn bedoeld als demo)

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?
