Each step in the process—from using the correct cast-on to applying appropriate shaping to blocking your project—can make the difference between something that stays in your closet to something you wear all the time with pride!

This collection of free tips and tricks will help you become a more successful knitter—go from good to great!

There are knitting techniques here that you'll find indispensable; some of the things you'll learn are:

—Casting on for ribbing

—Making a French knot

—Working short rows

—Felting or blocking your pieces successfully

—Making an applied I-chord

—Doing a three-needle bind-off

—Finishing a project with pom poms and tassels

Most recently, I used the three-needle bind-off on the shoulders of the Heather Hoodie Vest (one of my knit-alongs), and I remembered how much I like it—it's an easy, sturdy bind-off that leaves a clean, professional look. And the blocking tips in this eBook are the best! You won't believe how good your knitted items look after a good blocking!

I'll have to check this out. I haven't done any knitting for ages. I'm always writing. :)
