Take a needle several sizes larger than the ones you have used for the knitting - so the loops will be larger and the edge looser, knit the first two stitches onto the larger needle then use the tip of the other needle to lift the first stitch over the second one and right off the needle, so it is looped over the second stitch, but is no longer on the needle.
Knit another stitch and repeat the lifting over. I f you are casting off all the stitches continue to the end of the row and then cut the yarn, pass the end of the yarn through the last stitch and draw it up.
If you are only casting off part of the row then move the last stitch onto the right size needle and continue knitting on the stitches left in the row.

I have Aran wool and want to knit a simple adult over-sweater. How many stitches do I cast on and what size needles, please.


You need a pattern to follow. For one thing, yarns vary in thickness, so the number of stitches needed will be different dependent on the yarn thickness, not to mention the adult size you are seeking.

You should probably knit a sample piece probably 12" x 12" and count the number of rows per inch and the number of stitches per inch in order to determine how many you will need width wise and length wise for your garment.

What does knit over mean


Read the pattern again. You may be doing short rows. Buy a more detail knitting book. If you can go to Knit and Crochet Today it's a tv show that has a website they have experts in knitting and crocheting. Sure there is a demo or someone you can ask to explain in detail. I think the show comes on Thursday in Chicago but its once a week on cable/satellite on pbs.

Knittin a baby cardie. Pattern says to knir and purl 11 stitches n turn. This to b done 5 times. I gav 5 sections of 11 stitches on each side. Some stitches left. Told to cast off. Do i jus cast off...


I am guessing that you were knitting the arm hole on the sweater. You should have cast off the remaining stitches beyond the 11 when you came to them. If you cast off each area separately, you should be okay. Cast of the 11, cut and tie you thread, the cast off the remaining stitches.
