Alternate Needle Knitting


Designs Using Hold Position

Speaker:  Sue Booth

Designs Using Holding Position

Alternate Needle Knitting allows us to use thicker wool, even an Aran weight on our Standard Gauge Machine

This Sample shows Tuck stitch using two strands of 4 ply, on Alternate needles and at the top Sue added the Aran weight for the fairisle

Turning a Corner Using Holding Position

Add a Fringe


by adding rows between turns you can make the centre for a Poncho

Diamonds, Triangles Parallelograms or Circles, the choice is yours to explore

Hand Selection Fair Isle

We were packing up and Sue found time to show me Hand Selection Fair Isle

Instructions for all these designs can be found in our Members Area
