In this DROPS video we show how you can crochet back and forth with two colours. You can use this technique to make small motifs, vertical lines, dots, letters. When you crochet with 2 colors back and forth and you want to carry along the thread, then you just crochet around the thread you are not working with to carry it along. On the last stitch you make with one color, wait with last pull through and pull through with the new color of the following stitch. You can carry along a color by crocheting around it for as many stitches you want, then when it is time to change, you just use it in the last pull through and continue with that color. If it's not a single motif and you will use the 2nd color again later on the row, you can carry it along while working around that one until you need it again. Remember - when carrying along a color or more the fabric will become much thicker. This video has NO SOUND - you must read the pattern to be able to follow this video properly.

In this DROPS video we show you how to work the herringbone stitch in the round. This pretty herringbone texture is not as complicated as it may look. The classic texture is perfect for patterns like scarfs, neck warmers, hats and interior design. The fabric gets dense so you need to work on a larger needle than recommended for the yarn size. HERRINGBONE PATTERN (divisible with an even number): Make sure the stitches aren’t twisted around the needle, and join by slipping the last stitch you cast on from the right needle to the left needle (so that it is next to the first stitch you casted on). Place a stitch marker on the right needle. K2tog and slip only the first stitch off the left needle (leaving the second stitch on the needle). Round 1: K2tog and slip only the first stitch off the left needle, repeat until 1 stitch remains before the stitch marker. When you have 1 st left before the stitch marker, remove the stitch marker and place it on the right needle. K2tog, slipping the first stitch off the left needle. Remove the next stitch on the left needle, twist it the other way and put it back on the needle. Round 2: K2tog through the back loop and slip only the first stitch off the left needle, repeat until 1 st remains before the stitch marker. When you have 1 st left before the stitch marker, remove the stitch marker and place it on the right needle. K2tog through the back loop and slip only the first stitch off the left needle.

n this DROPS video we show how you can unravel a garter stitch safely. You are working in garter stitch and you realize that you knitted too far, or maybe you see a mistake a few rows down. To knit backwards takes time, and for some slippery yarns it's not a great idea to pull out the needle to start unravel. In this video we show how to unravel safely, by putting your needle into the stitches on the row you want to unravel to. Then you can pull out the needle and start unravel with no risk of loosing any stitches in the process. Decide how far you want to unravel. Pick up the right leg of each stitch from the behind. This way all stitches will turn the right way when you are ready, and you can start knitting again. This video has NO SOUND - you must read the explanations to be able to follow this video properly.

In this DROPS video we show two ways to knit nupps, with both versions make sure to make really loose loops! If you are doing lace knitting, you may have come across nupps. Nupps originates from Estonian knitting, and adds pretty texture. Nupps are like bobbles, and reminds of flower buds. Knit a nupp by knit and make a yarn over a number of times into the same stitch, end with a knit stitch. Usually end when you have knitted 5, 7 or 9 loops, depending on how big you want the nupp to be. Put all loops back on LH needle and knit all loops into 1 stitch. Tighten yarn and keep on knitting. Or you can use a crochet hook to do the same thing. *Go through stitch, get yarn, make a yo on hook, repeat from * and end with going through stitch and getting the yarn, Then make a yo and pull yarn through all loops on hook = 1 stitch. Put this stitch back on RH needle, tighten and keep knitting. This video has NO SOUND - you must read the explanations to be able to follow this video properly.

In this DROPS video we show how you can knit a Moebius (Möbius) ring. Moebius was a German mathematician from the beginning of the 19th century, who developed the magically twisted circle ring on which this knitting technique is based. Use a long circular needle - at least 32 inch. Cast on around double needle points. Number of sts cast on divided by gauge will give finished diameter. Pull out one needle and move sts to needle with no working yarn. With other side of needle pick up sts in each long loop under each stitch all around. (Since not picking up in the first st you will end up with an odd total number of sts). The needles should now be on the outside of the cable and the cable is twisted one time on the middle. Join and start knitting in the round. First time you get to the starting tail you have worked all sts cast on on needle and now you will make first round on the sts picked up and first time you work these you knit in the back loop. Following rounds will be worked in front loop as normally. If you keep knitting in the round half your work will be in stockinette and half in reversed stockinette. Since you have an odd number of sts you could K1,P1 all around and your moebius will be all in seed sts. This video has NO SOUND - you must read the pattern to be able to follow this video properly.

In this DROPS video we show how to make an invisible cast on in double knitting. Cast on this way with two colors alternating for an invisible start on your double knitted piece. The starting slipknot will be dropped after a couple rows and is not to be included in the number of stitches to be cast on. You cast on for both sides at the same time, and the stitches alternately belongs to front and back side of work. Make sure to cast on an even number of stitches, so that you will have the same amount of sts in the front and in the back. When working first row make sure strands are twisted to secure first stitch. Make sure to knit the knit stitches and purl the purl stitches as shown in our video.

In this DROPS video we show three different ways to work Bosnian crochet aka crochet slips sts. Remember to crochet LOOSELY. We start by crocheting a set number of ch and form a ring by working a sl st in 1st ch. Then we crochet sl sts into the back of the ch sts on the first ch round, this creates a nice edge that doesn't roll. After 1st round we continue working sl sts in the back loops of the sts (in green). Then we show how to work sl sts in the front loops of the sts (in pink). Finally we show how to work sl st through both loops (off white), when working through both loops it's not called Bosnian crochet. When working sl st in back loops we create a horizontal stripes and when working in front loops we create a slanting texture, and when working through both loops there will be a vertical texture. The Bosnian technique gives a dense and durable texture, which is a less elastic and since you work in the round, this technique is perfect for hats and mittens.
