Pick up through knit

  • Stitches can be picked up at a cast on or cast off edge, or along a horizontal row within the knitting.
  • They can also be picked up at a selvedge or curved edge, or in a straight or curved line within the knitting.
  • There are several ways of picking up stitches. For instructions, see a resource such as The Handknitter's Handbook (p188-91).
  • An alternative method is to sew through the fabric to make a row of stitches that can be knitted (or crocheted). For instructions, see Make Do and Mend by the Ministry of Information (p50-1).
