addi FlexiFlips Needle Review

This video is a review of the FlexiFlips dpns from addi (called CraSyTrios in Europe). This review covers the features of the needles, and compares each element to other tools used to knit small circumference items in the round.

As CraSyTrios, these needles come in standard European sizes from 2.0mm to 5mm: 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, and 5.0.

In the North American market, Skacel has added US 1/2.25mm and US 2/2.75mm to the size range.

Knitting Help – Helix Knitting (Jogless One-Round Stripes)

In this video I demonstrate a technique for working one-round stripes (think striped hat) with clean color changes.

Take your total number of stitches, and divide that number by the number of colors you want to use in your stripes. In my sample, I have 72 stitches and 3 colors. 72 divided by 3 = 24, so I have 24 stitches between each of my markers. If the number of stripes you want to use don’t divide evenly into your stitch count (ex, 80 stitches and three colors), that’s okay. It isn’t vital that the stitches between the markers are the exact same number of stitches – getting close is fine. In the example I just gave, I would put 28/26/26 stitches in my segments.

The yarn in my “bad” example is leftover from my Om Shawl:

The yarn in my “good” sample is Berroco Vintage Worsted.

The needles I use are all Knitter’s Pride 16″ circulars from interchangeable sets.

My nail polish is Gelish, “I Or-kid You Not”.

KNITTING GAUGE for Total Beginners

Knitting gauge is one of the most important knitting concepts to understand. It’s the difference between garments that fit and garments that are disastrously too small or too large. Someone who understands knitting gauge has a world of well-fitting sweaters, mittens, socks and more at their fingertips!

In this video, we’ll go over what gauge is, why it’s important, and how to get it so that you can start knitting things that fit! As a wise yarn wrangler once said, “If you want to knit something that fits, then you got to get gauge.”
