Knit Trimmings

This week’s episode of Ask Me Monday is the sister-segment to last week’s Crochet Trimmings show. In this episode, I’ll show how to make three knit trimmings: two original, and one from my book Wee Garter Stitch, all of which would make adorable gift wrappings, edgings or embellishments. Watch the video, then use the patterns below to play with creating your own knit trimmings. Oh, and don’t forget to tag @vickiehowell when with your knits!
