knitting gauge
To check gauge, cast on thirty to forty stitches using recommended needle size. Work in pattern stitch until piece measures
at least 4" (10 cm) from cast-on edge. Remove swatch from
needles or bind off loosely and lay swatch on flat surface. Place
a ruler over swatch and count number of stitches across and
number of rows down (including fractions of stitches and rows)
in 4" (10 cm). Repeat two or three times on different areas of
swatch to confirm measurements. If you have more stitches
and rows than called for in instructions, use larger needles;
if you have fewer, use smaller needles. Repeat until gauge is
correct.

reading charts
Unless otherwise indicated, read charts from the bottom up. On
right-side rows, read charts from right to left. On wrong-side
rows, read charts from left to right. When knitting in the round,
read charts from right to left for all rounds.

idea of essential is both fluid and not. There are technically only
three essentials in lifefood and water, shelter, and clothingyet we
all have things that we feel we just cant live without. Pulling together a collection
of essential winter knitwear is likewise hard to pin down. The obvious: outerwear and accessories. But the particularsthats where life and knitting both get
interesting.
I asked designers to send in their own ideas of essential winter knitwear and
received some outstanding submissions. The collection in these pages represents
my ideal of Knitscenes winter essentials. From close-fitting layers to more flowing
tops in the outerwear story (pages 2430) to both classic and experimental takes
on accessories (pages 3237), these pieces bridge traditional ideas of knitwear (see
Meghan Babins Red Loop Pullover or Jesie Ostermillers Snowfall Sweater) with
more contemporary ideas of fashion and form (such as Bristol Ivys Chamei Pullover or Jen Lucass Qeutzal Cowl) into twenty-one knitting patterns that are both
modern and timeless.
Twin sisters Sachiko and Kiyomi Burgin, frequently featured in the pages of
Knitscene and knit.purl, caught my attention because they inherently marry these
ideas of classic and contemporary in all of their patterns. Their six-piece designer
collection (pages 1217) is no exception: for example, Kiyomi updates the familiar
stranded-colorwork hat with the Deep Woods Toque, while Sachiko combines comfortable texture with clever, modern details in her Bay-and-Gable Tunic.
This intersection of classic and contemporary is where I feel most at home as a
knitter, and I suspect a lot of you at least feel comfortable there, too. As long as knitting remains an essential part of our lives, the traditional forms will never go away,
but I for one am excited to see how they continue to inform new ideas and new
movements in our little corner of the world.

Every pattern will always list the needle sizes required.


Heres a secret: The listed needle size is a recommendation.
The designer used that size for the sample. Thats all. If you
knit tighter, youll need larger needles; if you knit looser, youll
need smaller needles.
This is what gauge is about: making sure that you use the
right needle size for you. You need to match gauge so that the
finished piece comes out the right size. Sometimes gauge
isnt that importanta scarf can end up wider or narrower
and still function as a scarfbut gauge matters very much
for a sweater. Plus if you dont match gauge, your yarn usage
changes, and you risk running out!
Make a swatch. Its better to spend an hour swatching
than spend hours and hours making a hat thats so big it falls
off, or a sweater thats too small to wear. Swatching also gives
you a sense of how the yarn looks and feels and how it will
behave with washing.
The gauge information in the pattern will list a number of
stitches (and rows) over four inches in a stitch pattern. Using the
needle specified in the gauge information, cast on one-and-ahalf to two times the stitch count (e.g., for a gauge of 20 stitches,
cast on 30 to 40), and work in stockinette for about five inches. If
the pattern calls for gauge measured in a pattern stitch, such as
seed stitch or a lace pattern, youll need to work your swatch in
that pattern. Bind off, then wash the swatch the way youll wash
the finished piece. The washing is critical: many fabrics and
fibers change with washing, often stretching out. You need the
item to fit after its washed, not before.
Once your swatch is dry, measure the gauge. Count the
number of stitches in four inches. If the post-washing gauge
matches the pattern, youre good to go with those needles.
If youre getting too few stitchesfor example, 19 instead
of 20try again with needles one size smaller. If youre
getting too many stitches21 instead of 20try again with
needles one size larger.
If youre off by more than 15% on stitch gauge (three or four
stitches, practically speaking), consider a different yarn: you

cant change the gauge that much without changing the fabric.
You must match stitch gauge, but matching row gauge
exactly can be difficult. If you match stitch gauge, and your
row gauge is closeoff by no more than a couple of rows
then youre good to go for most patterns! Patterns that depend
on set numbers of rows, such as heavily cabled projects or
those with all-over lace, may require some adjustments. s

Snow Bowl Sweater

San Juans Sweater

Free Spirit Knits


by Anne Podlesak

Its a well-known fact that colder


weather is knitting season. Knitters
knit year-round, true, but theres something about spending winter with a lap
full of yarn that is incredibly satisfying.
Anne Podlesaks new book, Free Spirit
Knits, channels the American Southwest and beautiful warm weather,
but is full of things perfect to knit all
winter long.
The Snow Bowl Hoodie draws its
name from the Arizona Snow Bowl,
which has an elevation over 10,000
feet and boasts lots of great skiing. (I
honestly did not know there was skiing
in Arizona!) The yarn used is beautiful
wool from Green Mountain Spinnery
in Vermont, another ski-fi lled area, and
the hoodie features dynamic cables on
its back and sleeves. With a generous

hood and solid zipper, youll be stylishly set for chillier weather.
If youre looking to make something
for a gentleman, there are several awesome options here. Check out the San
Juans Sweater, which is actually a unisex cardigan, but its styled on a man
in the book, and I think it looks quite
handsome. Named for the mountains
that divide Colorado and New Mexico,
the delicate colors of this cardigan call
to mind glints of snow [covering] dark
gray rocks. Its a pattern of simple
stitches used creatively and a stunner
of a fi nished sweater.
When winter weather comes
knocking, its sometimes necessary
to escape into thoughts of warmer
climes, and what better way to do
so than through a beautiful, colorful,

and inspiring collection of knitwear?


Theres something here for everyone,
and the photography and patterns are
guaranteed to make you think warm
and cozy thoughts as you knit up
something to keep you warm and cozy
on the outside as well.

one hot summer day when
they were about twelve years
old. Both girls had expressed
talent in a variety of creative
pursuits, but along the way
the twin sisters took their
common creative interests
and diversified their skill
sets. Sachiko crochets, sews,
plays the guitar, and has a
degree in silversmithing and
jewelry design. Kiyomi paints,
sews, weaves, and has a
bachelors degree in art and
design. Their abilities to take
elements of their individual
craft pursuits and reimagine
them in knitwear has brought
them to the attention of the
knitting community, not only
as individual designers but
additionally as Knitscenes
first-ever featured designer
double act.

the world, in a multiplicity of colors,


fi bers, and textures, enter the shop.
This enriching environment nurtured
both Sachiko and Kiyomis aesthetics. They each claim that working at
Romni was integral to their decisions
to become designers, encouraged by
the wealth of hands-on learning the
space provided. Despite this, both
sisters still say designing feels new
to them. Each designer has about
two years of experience under her
belt, not only designing for yarn
companies and magazines but also
publishing independent patterns.
Sachikos knitwear design demonstrates a focus on delicate twists
on simple elements such as shaping,
ruffles, hemlines, and openwork.
Kiyomis love of color and extensive
study of studio art play a part in her
designs, with garment shape, drape,
and structure coming to light in her
sketches. For this issue, the sisters
combined their individual aesthetics
to create a collection of six patterns
that reflect their collective style and
speak to the importance and inspiration of their home in Canada.
Beginning with a solid understanding of each others styles and
each unafraid to critique the other,
the sisters sketched, swatched, and
brainstormed individually, bringing
their ideas together and problemsolving with great thoughtfulness
and attention to detail. Where one
designer thought a piece was missing
something, the other suggested a new
twist or design element that helped to
create a cohesive pattern and unified
whole.

knitscene.com

Their jumping-off point for this


collection was a grouping of key ideas
surrounding their vision of Canadian
identity: natural spaces, a sense of
home, and comfort. Both Kiyomi and
Sachiko have traveled across Canada.
The vast tracts of countryside and
stunning natural beauty helped to
form their ideas of home and inspire
their focus on layers of cozy, woolly
warmth, perfect for a winter knitwear
collection. Canada certainly has a
reputation for its winters, but theres
a distinct comfort and wearability in
the Burgins designs that showcases
Canadian character without being
a stereotype. These designs cloak
the knitter in layers of heat-trapping
yarn that enable a stylish comfort in
the colder months. They also give
the knitter the experience of a clever
knitting process and a fi nished item
that delivers a warmth beyond the
physical kind; an enjoyment of the
knitting itself. Thick, woolly textures,
comfy shapes, and stylish, yet neutral,
colors call to mind those nights where
you just want to cuddle up to the fi re,
warm and happy.
All three of Sachikos pieces in this
collection demonstrate her drive to
come up with new and different forms
in her design work. As a self-described
process knitter, she pays particular
attention to the behavior of stitch
patterns. A great example of this is the
soft upward sweep of the front hemline
on the Bay-and-Gable Tunic, where the
trellis panel itself draws the sweater
into a soft hi-lo shape without having
to work any shaping into the stitches.
Kiyomi draws her inspiration from
what she can envision herself wearing.
She calls herself a product knitter and
looks to incorporate special details
into basic shapes that anyone would
want to knit. Her designs can be best
described as modern, refreshed clas-

with comfortable, wearable details.


You can see this in her Queen Street
Sweater, where well-placed pockets
seamlessly flow from the front of the
sweater into a perfectly picked spot
where your hands would naturally,
comfortably lay.
Sachiko and Kiyomi have a dedication to and enthusiasm for knitting. They have both struck a chord
of attractive style and substance
that resonates with many knitters.
Each, in her own way, infuses great
thoughtfulness into her design work.
Even though they both say their
design journey still feels new, they
demonstrate a great knowledge base,
and they express the excitement that
many of us knitters feel about the
unending scope to learn more about
knitting. This energy is felt through
their designs. You can fi nd more about

AND GAINING THE CONFIDENCE TO FINISH ANY THING
Kiyomi Burgin

This might sound familiar: Youve spent hours, possibly


weeks, or even months, inching through complicated colorwork charts, meticulously counting stitches over rows of intricate lace or diligently stitching up miles of stockinette stitch.
And its finally done. Except for one final stepFINISHING!
The number of times Ive heard of
knitters abandoning their beautiful hard
work at the fi nishing stage makes me
sad. How can it be they would rather
give up than face the fi nal seams, pick
up a neckline, set in a sleeve, or complete a pocket?!
Dont give it upinstead, arm yourself with the right resources, tools, and
mindset, and you will discover fi nishing is not difficult or painful. When the
metamorphosis of your time, energy, and
gorgeous yarn results in beautiful form,
well, its nothing short of wondrous.
The Queen Street Sweater is a very
simple design, so do not be intimidated
by the pockets. The goal of this tutorial

18

knitscene.com

is to provide the techniques to complete


the slit pockets so they will fold effortlessly into the garment, giving your
pullover a clean fi nish, and make all that
stockinette stitch worthwhile. These
techniques can be used for other knit
projects as well.
Before you get started, block the front
piece of your project so that everything
is flat and is easy to see (Figure 1).
Although this is optional, I highly recommend it. Find a well-lit, flat work surface,
and lets get started!

STEP 1: PICK UP THE STITCHES

2a

For this step, you will fi rst be picking up stitches


along the cast-on edge of the upper pocket flap.
This area will be visible if the pocket is open or
gapes a bit while wearing, so you want to create the
illusion that it is a continuous piece of knitting and
that there is no cast-on edge. With right side facing,
insert the needle tip into the "V" of each stitch
just below the cast-on edge and pull yarn through
(Figure 2 and 2a). Repeat this in every stitch along
cast-on edge until you reach the corner gap.
Now you will be picking up stitches along the
side (selvedge edge) of the lower pocket flap. Skip
over the corner gap (dont worry, it will close once
you start knitting) and pick up stitches in the
spaces between the purl bars one stitch from the
edge. I recommend picking up three stitches for
every four rows. Once all stitches have been picked
up, knit your pocket flap to its required depth.

NOTE:
All instructions are for the left pocket. I have
used a plain yarn for some steps here to clearly
show techniques.

STEP 2: CLOSE THAT BOTTOM


After youve knitted enough rows for the depth of your
pocket, turn your work to the wrong side as carefully as you
can (since you still have live stitches on your needles; you dont
want to lose any at this step).
Now its time to do a three-needle bind-off. Arrange your
stitches so there is an even number at each end of your circular
needle. If you fi nd straight or double-pointed needles easier to
manage, you can change needles. Now youre ready to work
the three-needle bind-off (Figure 3). See how its done at
knittingdaily.com/Glossary.
If a three-needle bind-off isnt appealing, skip the previous step, and bind off all stitches as usual, then whipstitch
the bottom closed. Alternatively, graft the live stitches using
Kitchener stitch to close the bottom. Do this with the right side
of the work facing.

STEP 3: SEW UP THE SIDE OPENING


Thread a long piece of yarn onto a tapestry needle and, with
the right side facing and starting at the pocket flap bottom, sew
the remaining side of pocket closed using mattress stitch. Mattress stitch is my favorite! It creates a beautiful invisible seam
and isnt hard to do. See more detailed instructions at knitting
daily.com/Glossary.
At first you will be sewing row to row, then it will change to
bound-off stitches to rows. For the latter, insert needle behind
V of stitch just below bound-off edge. On the other side, alternate between picking up one or two bars (Figure 4). Dont pull
too tight! When using single-ply yarns such as Noro Silk Garden
Solo, you might want to add extra twist to the yarn by rolling
the threaded tapestry needle in your hands in the direction that
the yarn is spun. This will give the yarn a bit more strength for
seaming.

STEP 4: ONE LAST STEP


Tuck pocket to the wrong side of work, weave in any ends,
and let out a big sigh with relief because your fi rst slit pocket
is done (Figures 5 and 6)! Congratulate yourself and know that
you are a superstar knitter. Your knitting and non-knitting
friends alike are sure to be impressed by those pockets.
And if your fi nishing job isnt quite as perfect as imagined,
no worries. As much as Im a stickler for fi nishing, I still believe
that slight imperfections are what make handmade garments
special and unique. Washing and blocking your sweater again
will help even out stitches. Also, textural yarns such as Noro
Silk Garden Solo are very forgiving since they camouflage any
little mishaps. s

Short-row shaping is used to create a more

The chart is worked using the stranded

Photos by Heidi Gustad

crafts in general, but in the past two


years as Ive begun designing more and
more, Hands Occupied has evolved into
a blog that focuses primarily on knitting,
crochet, and yarn crafts.

my background in informal learning is


why I love giving it away for free, so to
speak. I think its rad when I get feedback from readers who say they started
knitting after watching my Knewbies
video tutorial series. Sometimes when
readers have questions they take to the
Ravelry group or a posts comment section to share tips and ideas for success
with different projects.

Q What inspired you to start


a blog?
A Because Im obviously insane,

Q Which post has been your


favorite to write so far?
A I love a good knit-along. So I guess

I started blogging during one of the


busiest times in my life. I was twentythree. I had a full-time job, was working
on my library degree full time, and I was
planning my wedding. I think I started
Hands Occupied for a few reasons: I really wanted to learn photography and Web
design, but I also wanted something
to motivate me to keep actively creating with my hands, despite the busy
schedule. When youre knitting, even if
its from the hollow your butt has created
in the sofa, youre off the computer and
connecting with something real.

my favorite posts (plural) are the knitalongs Ive done. Theyre a chance to dig
deeper in a series of tutorials, more so
than Id be able to in a one-off tutorial or
free pattern post.

Q How long have you been


blogging?
A Five years. At first I blogged about

Heidi Gustad is blogging up a


storm on her website, Hands
Occupied. From posting great
tutorials and knitting patterns
to cohosting the new knitting
YouTube show, YarnTalk, Heidis
constantly contributing to the
knitting world. Read on for more
from Heidi and visit her website
at www.handsoccupied.com.

knitscene.com

Q What types of projects do you


like to knit and blog?
A From day one as a blogger, Ive
been a tutorial gal. Step-by-step tutorials
and videos are where its at. By day I'm a
librarian, and I work with teens. I think

Q Name one blog you love to


read and share why you love it.
A I'm going to have to go with Flax &
Twine (www.flaxandtwine.com). Anne is
a knitter who blogs about general crafts
as well. She has incredible photography
and a super-strong aesthetic that comes
across so beautifully in every post she
publishes. I love Annes work!

scarves, and more showcase the versatility of slip
stitch by using it as an allover pattern or accent.
