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 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.”
