Hello! This week we’re taking a look at a popular stitch, one that will really improve how much detail you can add into your knitting project. Whether you’re happy with the knitting skills you already have or you’re always on the lookout for something new, we’d recommend learning to knit the popcorn stitch. Though it is often considered to be one of the more basic knitting stitches, a lot of knitters struggle to pick it up.
Being able to knit using different types of stitches is the key to being a good knitter; not only does it allow you to knit better and more competently, but it also allows you to knit a wider variety of designs. After all, we’ve all started out with a basic stitch and big ideas only to find that it left us extremely limited in what we can and cannot knit. However, by taking the time to learn other stitches, you’re automatically opening the door to being able to knit more complex and impressive items. The more skills you know the better the knitter you can become, isn’t that right? That is why we’ve chosen to focus on ‘How to Knit the Popcorn Stitch’ this week.
