About Fariba Zahed

When I was child, my mom and grandma used to knit during the winters. I was in 5 when I made my first stitch with my grandma's help. The excitement of making the first stitch made me passionate about learning it in the later years. Little by little, I found knitting really enjoyable and entertaining. Today, scientists have discovered knitting can reduce the stress level and prevent Alzheimers in older ages. Years of experience in knitting have made it clear for me that the best way to teach knitting to someone is through showing it practically. Sometimes it's hard to understand what the writer means when they are explaining a specific pattern, so learning through watching is the best way. Beside that, watching is common language worldwide. Here, I am sharing the patterns and models that I have learned during the years by capturing step by step videos. I hope this weblog will help people who have the enthusiasm of knitting and people who want to learn knitting for any reason.

      Absolutely you can use pattern 15 for a cardigan, however I am not sure how many stitches you will require to cast on. It depends on the pattern you wanna follow.

    It means;
    if you end up the first row by 2 knit stitches, you should start the 2nd row by 2 purl stitches, and continue with 2 knit, 2 purl and so on
    if you end up the first row by 2 purl stitches, you should start the 2nd row by 2 knit stitches, and continue with 2 purl, 2 knit and so on
    if you end up the first row by 1 knit stitches, you should start the 2nd row by 1 purl stitches, and continue with 2 knit, 2 purl and so on
    if you end up the first row by 1 purl stitches, you should start the 2nd row by 1 knit stitches, and continue with 2 purl, 2 knit and so on

    If you are just practicing the pattern, I suggest you to start, at least, with 28 stitches. Since the pattern is mainly formed in front side of the project, and all return rows are simply purled, there is not any obligation for number of stitches. However, having even number of stitches will help you in figuring out the pattern easily.
