Overview

Create three cute, chevron-themed projects, each using just one skein of yarn! Join yarn shop owner and instructor Aurora Sisneros, and breeze through three exclusive patterns while learning techniques that become a bit more advanced with each project. Master the long-tail cast-on, joining in the round and keeping track of your rounds as you knit and purl the classy Chevron Cowl. Work increases for shaping, knit eye-catching cables and master double-pointed needles as you make the chic Chevron Hat. Then learn to work a lace pattern and shape thumbs as you finish a pair of fabulous, fingerless Chevron Mitts.

1. Introduction

Meet your instructor, Aurora Sisneros, and learn more about the projects you'll make and the supplies you'll need. Whether you're a continental or English knitter, you'll see stitches demonstrated using both styles.

2. The Chevron Cowl Part 1
17m

2. The Chevron Cowl Part 1

Aurora starts you off with casting on for a simple cowl with an elegant chevron design. Even if you haven't worked with circular needles before, Aurora shows you an easy method for creating the stitches and then joining to work in the round. Knitting in the tail at this point means one less end to weave in later!

3. The Chevron Cowl Part 2
37m

3. The Chevron Cowl Part 2

Once you've knit a few rounds to establish the rolled edge of the cowl, it's time to start the chevron pattern. Aurora walks you through the steps and discusses ways of keeping your place in your knitting. If you make a mistake, no worries! Learn how to knit backward, or "tink," to get back to the mistake and fix it. Knit along with Aurora, learn a stretchy bind-off, weave in the ends and block your cowl for your finished accessory!
