How to get that knit look with crochet

I’ve fallen in love with the knit stitch.  I used it my recent Fair Isle Beanie, it’s a great stitch that creates a nice thick fabric without holes.  Which is great for warmth in the Fall & Winter.  I’m working on a series of beanies that will be a lot of fun – I hope you enjoy them all, so keep an eye out over the next few weeks :).

Check out the video at the bottom of the post to help you work the stitch!

Knit / Waistcoat Stitch Tutorial

A whole new world opens up for you when you dive into learning this simple stitch.  You will be amazed at how easy it is.  Here are a few tips on keeping your stitches looking good and even.

Tension – this stitch requires you to loosen up a bit.  If you are a tight crocheter, you’ll have to consciously loosen or “pull-up” on each stitch to make sure it doesn’t get too tight.

Consistency – when you make color changes using this stitch, you have to be consistent on how you work the color changes.  It will make a big difference in the back of your work.  This pattern requires a consistent band otherwise, when you flip up the brim, it will look messy!  No one wants that :).

Patience – learning this stitch takes time and practice.  The first time I created a pattern with it, I got calluses on my fingers because my stitches were too tight!  I even wore down one of my fingernails.  So just be patient and take your time.  This stitch is one that takes patience and as you practice more, your speed will increase. 

I also created a video on how to change colors using the knit stitch, which is super helpful with creating this pattern.  You can find that video here.
