How to Knit Crocus Model vest with Two Skewers
Knitting is a relaxing and fulfilling hobby that has been around for centuries. It is a great way to create unique and personalized clothing items, and the best part is that anyone can learn how to knit
! In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to create a beautiful crocus model vest
using just two skewers. Let's get started!
What You Will Need:
- Two knitting skewers
- Yarn in the color of your choice
- A crochet hook
- A tape measure
Step 1: Cast On
First, you need to cast on the stitches. To do this, make a slip knot with the yarn and place it on one of the skewers. Then, holding the skewer with the slip knot in your left hand and the other skewer in your right hand, wrap the yarn around your left thumb and hold it between your thumb and index finger. Insert the right skewer through the loop on your left thumb, then bring the yarn behind the right skewer and wrap it around the skewer. Pull the right skewer through the loop on your left thumb, and slip the loop off your thumb. You have now cast on one stitch. Repeat this process until you have cast on the required number of stitches for your vest.
Step 2: Knit the Vest
Once you have cast on the stitches, it's time to start knitting! Hold the skewers with the cast-on stitches in your left hand and the empty skewer in your right hand. Insert the right skewer into the first stitch on the left skewer, from left to right. Wrap the yarn around the right skewer from back to front, and pull the loop through the stitch on the left skewer. Slip the stitch off the left skewer, and you have now knitted one stitch. Repeat this process until you have knitted all the stitches on the left skewer, then switch the skewers around and start knitting from the right skewer. Continue knitting until you have reached the desired length for your vest
Step 3: Bind Off
When you have finished knitting the vest to the desired length, it's time to bind off the stitches. To do this, knit the first two stitches on the left skewer. Then, insert the left skewer into the first stitch you knitted and lift it over the second stitch and off the skewer. Knit another stitch, then lift the previous stitch over the new stitch and off the skewer. Repeat this process until you have only one stitch left on the left skewer. Cut the yarn, leaving a tail, and pull the tail through the last stitch to secure it. Congratulations, you have finished knitting your crocus model
