  1. How do you sew up a hat so the seam doesn't look ugly , do you think sewing it with a sewing machine would work.

    1. I'm not sure about the sewing machine, I have never tried that before. However, I pasted a link to a tutorial below that might help. When I seam up my hats, etc. I use the whip stitch. It works good for me and if you do it neatly, it looks perfectly fine.

  2. Love these tutorials, could you advise the best way to do decreases for the neck opening of a V-neck sweater?

    1. Sure! Does the pattern you are using specifiy? If not, my favorites are the SSK (slip, slip, knit) and the K2tog (knit two together). I also like SKP (slip, knit, pass). I tend to use the K2tog most because it's so easy and fast.

  3. Hi, I am new to your website and I am currently knitting a premmie hat. How is it sterilised for use? Should I being doing anything before I hand them on? As you can see, I am new to this.

  5. I have been a knitted & crocheted for fourty years. I love your site, because you help fresh my memory on knitting techniques I haven't used often. My question for you, is I learned to knit before crochet, and I can read a knitting pattern. However, I never learned to read a crochet pattern. I have many blue ribbons for afghans I have made, but I have had to 'eyeball' crocheted items & then duplicate what I see. Do you have any tutorials on reading crochet patterns? There are so many patterns I can't eyeball, and want to learn to read a crochet pattern. I am disabled and love to knit & crochet. I just want to learn something I never learned. Your never too old to learn! Thank you for whatever you can tell me or share with me.
