What does Bor stand for in knitting?
BOR. Beginning of Row/Round.
Is knitting in the round difficult?
You might think that it’s scary or complicated, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! Knitting in the round is one of the easiest techniques to master. And here’s the good news: once you learn it, you probably won’t want to go back to regular flat needles.
Does length of circular needle matter?
You may have thought all along that bigger circular needles produce better stitches but you are wrong! Every circular needle size and cord length has its own purpose. Each needle size is numbered and the smaller this number is, the smaller the circular needle will be and you will also have to use a thinner yarn.
Do you need circular needles to knit a blanket?
I recommend ALWAYS using circular needles when knitting a blanket. You will still knit back-and-forth in rows, but the weight of the numerous stitches and growing fabric will rest on your lap as you work, rather than your wrists having to bear the strain.
What is a joining stitch?
Decorative stitch used in sleeves, fronts of blouses and dresses. Attach two separate pieces of fabric together, leaving a little space in between.
