Easier Knitting

Knitting the first row of your project can be a little slow because the stitches are usually quite tight. To solve this problem use two needles when casting on instead of one. The extra width of the two needles ensures that the stitches of the first row will be able to be knitted easily. Alternately you could use a knitting needle that is several sizes larger than the one needed in your project to achieve the same result.

  1. I have knitted for many many years but have never thought of knitting a dish cloth and the fact that they can also be used on the car is an added bonus. I spend a lot of money on dish cloths so this looks like I may be able to save some money as I haven't found a dish cloth that I am satisfied with thank you for the tip. I have also taught my granddaughters to knit which is very satisfying.
