This was a learning experience for me. I taught myself to knit at least 5 years ago….hmmm maybe 7 but I never did anything challenging. This was a huge challenge for me. I ripped this out several times and my dog helped me rip it out once too. I had to learn to relax so I could knit 2 and 3 stitches together in one which can be tricky. I learned the provisional cast on which uses a scrap piece of yarn to hold stitches that can later be placed on a needle and knit in the other direction or you can kitchener two edges together (as above) and avoid leaving a seam. So, that is another thing I learned – how to kitchener, or weave stitches together so it blends in with the rest of the knitting. Mine is not perfect but is better than I thought I could do. I’m very happy with it. I made this face cloth for a Christmas gift and wrapped it up with some rose french milled soap.
