Question from listener about ease in garments Knitbot Simple Hat KAL Buttonhole sampler Pam's Favorite Buttonhole: double yo work row 1 (RS) to 2 stitches before the buttonhole stitch. make a double yarn over by bringing the yarn through the needles to the front, then over the RH needle to the back, then to the front between the needles again. knit the next 2 stitches together, knit to the end of the row. work row 2 to the yarn over, purl into the yarn over, letting the second wrap drop from the left needle, work to the end of the row. work row 3 to the stitch above the buttonhole, knit into the hole (not the stitch above) and carry on. Hannah's Favorite Buttonhole: one row buttonhole bring yarn to front slip 1 stitch from left to right needle move yarn to back slip 1 stitch from left to right needle. Pass first sl st over 2nd sl st. Repeat twice more, a total of 3 sts bound off (or as many as you want) Slip last st you bound off back to your left needle, turn work so WS is facing you. cast on 4 sts, which is 1 more than we bound off, onto your left needle with a knitted cast on, turn your work so that RS is facing once again Slip 1 st from left needle to right needle. Cast the last cast on st over the slipped st. You now have a buttonhole slit 3 sts wide.

A quality knitting podcast
A friendly and informative podcast from two knitting experts. Really enjoyed the first episode and looking forward to hearing more from Pam and Hannah.
Thank you, thank you...both!
Hannah and Pam, thank you sooo much for starting this endeavor! How amazing to have two incredible knit designers and fiber gurus share their craft. This episode was jam packed! Gauge had to be a tough subject to start with but certainly the necessary beginning. I look forward to next week and the next and many more after that. Thanks again!
PLEASE…..stop smacking your tongue!
This podcast would be ok if Hanna would stop smacking her tongue or lips…not sure what it is but it is very annoying to listen to. For this reason I cannot subscribe to this podcast. I am sure it has a lot of great techniques and tricks but…..
