Knitting Questions


Sorry - this section has been temporarily disabled.

Due to some unpleasant family circumstances, I currently do not have the time available to answer these questions and I am afraid I will have to temporarily stop taking any new questions.  If you need answers please do check out the questions I have already answered - some one may have had the same issue - or look at the questions and answers on the open questions page.

Hopefully my family circumstances will resolve themselves reasonably quickly (and in a positive way) and I will be able to open this page up to questions again.

Thank you for your patience . . . 

Are you having problems with your knitting?

If you add your knitting questions using the form below, you can have have them answered by an experienced knitter. I have been knitting for over forty years, so it is just not possible for you to have a problem that I haven't already experienced!






Typical questions about knitting:

  • Can't understand the pattern
  • Dropped a stitch - how to fix it
  • My tension is all wrong
  • I have to unpick and re-knit but the wool is all lumpy now
  • How do I finish off the loose ends in my garment

Bear in mind that this list is by no means comprehensive and is only provided as a guide.

Whether your questions are about reading a pattern or how to actually do something, you can submit your question here and it will be answered for you as soon as possible.

Don't forget to add a photo to your submission if you can, it will help me to see what the problem is!

Please Remember the Submission Rules:

  • Use proper English.
  • Be polite.
  • If you want me to interpret your pattern, tell me which pattern it is and type out the instructions you are having trouble with.
  • Add a photo of what you have done so far so that I can see what you are grappling with.
  • Don't nag or becoming demanding - remember that I am doing this as a favour to help you out - I do not owe you anything.
  • Check the Answered Questions page as I might have already answered a similar question.
