    I’d like directions for knitting a rolled neckline instead of a ribbed one. What type of knitting shall I do after I have the stiches on the needle to have it roll?

    For a rolled neckline, work the neckband in stockinette and bind off loosely.

    Your videos are so helpful. I especially like the close up camera and your pace is nice and slow so I can actually do it along with you.
    Any suggestions for picking up stitches on a V-neck sweater?

    I love V-neck sweaters! After you pick up the appropriate number of stitches, be sure to work a Central Double Decrease at the center front. Check out my video to learn how:)

    Your video lessons are my all time favorite. Whenever I’m confused about a particular stitch you are able to give directions that are crystal clear. I looked at another site for pick up and knit and I couldn’t get it to work. Maybe she was a continental knitter and that was the difference. I don’t know, but I’m once again moving forward in my project thanks to you. Happy knitting!
