There are so many wonderful knitting tricks that make our lives better. Over the years of knitting and teaching I've accumulated quite a few fantastic tricks. I love it when I'm teaching a class and a student declares "I love that tip!". So, I've decided to dig into my knitting bag of tricks and put them all in one class. From how to do a better SSK, make matching size YOs, to how to avoid the gap at the end of a bind off, how to tighten your first stitch, how to make better neck divides, and more. Get ready to find your new favorite knitting tricks!
