  • Hi, Mary Grace. Thanks for your site. Every time it's hard to understand how to work a new stitch I run to see your tutorials.
    Now I'm trying to knit a scarf and there must be "raised knit stitch" which I've attempted to get with no good results. Can you help me? .
    Thanks a lot and Merry Christmas!!

  • Hi Alma, thanks for your kind words. I'm not quite sure what you have in mind for the raised knit stitch. If you have a picture of what you want to do, I might be able to figure out what you're looking for. Or a pattern that uses the stitch. If you can give me more details about the result you want to achieve, I might be able to help. Also an email address would be wonderful so I could respond directly to you.

  • Hi, Mary Grace. Thanks for answering. What I’m trying to do is a scarf similar to the ones showed here http://www.morehousefarm.com/KnittingKits/Scarves/Alligator/
    My niece saw those scarves and asked me if I could make one for her. She doesn’t want an alligator scarf; she wants a “simple” one with all those bumps.
    Where I live, in Mexico, it’s not easy to find knitting and crocheting magazines or books, so I started looking in the web for the way to knit it and somewhere I found that the stitch is called “raised knit stitch”. The instructions I could find were this:
    Raised Knit Stitch. Insert needle into the st below next st on left-hand needle and draw yarn through (2 st on right-hand needle), purl the next st on left-hand needle (2 sts on right-hand needle), pass the first of these 2 sts over the last the last st.
    I’ve tried to interpret it, but I get nothing. Hope you can help me.
    Thanks and wish you and your family lots of blessing in 2010

  • Hello Mary Grace,

    Thanks so much for all of the wealth of information here.

    I'll be trying God willing to come back here, I need to improve my knitting skills.

    It's nice that there are still people out there who enjoy their work, and even more so teaching/helping others.

    I find I benefit/learn more from people who are sincere in their efforts to help others than not. I really appreciate that. Thank you.

    Kindest regards,

    Crocheting Mom

  • Mary Grace, I have a knitting question for you.
    Have you ever tried to use the "Knifty Knitter" looms? They show you that you can make scarfs and they even give you a tutorial on line via you tube...But I still can't use that fancy yarn that look like it has strings hanging from it. Let me know if you use the yarn I am happy to send you some..
