I CANNOT UNDERSTAND the directions for the band of the pink pearl cap on expression fiber arts crochet pattern. I need some clarification please…… Thank you
Beth, sure! Just send me an email and I’d be happy to assist. 🙂
Where do you get your eye for color? Are you self-taught? I just think your photos that pair with your yarn dye colors are amazing. I wish I could afford to buy them all… they are truly beautiful!
I am self-taught lover of color! : )
Ha ha! I love how you use finger nail clippers to clip the yarn! 🙂
The colors are beautiful. I know what I going to ask for on my birthday!!!!. Have a great day everyone.
A request for a tutorial video: I would love to see a video about how to add beads to a knitting or crochet project. Your yarn is so pretty and would love to add some bling to my projects! Thank you!
Certainly add it to our list!
what is the name of your favorite woul
Yes I have a question for the beginning knitters video. Do you need size 9 needles or can a size 8 or 6 work? I don’t understand the sizes so I feel confused and if the reason is easier than that’s fine, I’d just like to know.
Sure either of those sizes will work. Just so you like the look of the finished item, you are good. 🙂
I have another question. I feel confused about making a scarf for my husband. I have baby alpaca yarn, blue and black. Do you have a tutorial on getting started and how wide? Thank you for any help.
Yes! We are currently working on some beginner tutorials that should help you. Just keep a watch on our YouTube channel! https://www.youtube.com/user/ExpressionFiberArts
Im not sure how to do a wrong side knit Can you explain im doing your Sail Into the sunset scarf would be helpful
Your knitting video taught me to knit and I am soooooooooo thankful! You are awesome!
I love your newest free pattern inspired by your trip to London. The instructions are within my ability since I have been knitting for only a year. Since I’m not a very experienced knitter, it seems to me that the instructions for round 2 (k1, *yo, k2tog* (repeat from star two more times), knit to the end) will not result in the gap being in the middle of the scarf. Am I misunderstanding something? Please explain. Thanks!
I just want to thank you for helping me find my love of yarn again. I use to crotchet blankets all the time but never was able to learn knitting. Stumbled upon your youtube channel looking for knitting for beginners and you are by far my favorite person who makes tutorials on youtube due to you not just telling but showing and even leading to your other videos for examples or how to get started. Just want to say thank you for being thoughtful and most helpful ^_^
i cannot get the crocodile slipper pattern please send it to me. thanks
Chandi, your tutorials alone taught me how to knit, and I have a newfound obsession! I found myself exclusively looking for your videos on Youtube because you’re the only knitting instructor I want to watch, and then I found your website, yay!…I’m working on finishing my first project; a headband, and I look forward to tackling more projects! Your yarn is beautiful and so is your story, thank you for creating such a wonderful opportunity for so many people to share your love of knitting!
Thank you for you beginner’s knitting video.. im 64 and have tried every book and video but yours is the only one that really made since.. now im an old granny..knitter!! teaching my 16 yr old grandson too.. thanks!!
How old were you when you first started to crochet
I was 9
I learned everything I know about crocheting from my great grandmother when I was little. I am just now learning to knit from your videos (thank you!). Have you ever tried tatting with a tatting shuttle? I inherited my grandmothers shuttles, but her eyesight had failed and she was never able to teach me how. I have several snowflakes on my Christmas tree every year that she made and your tiny snowflakes reminded me of them. I love your website and look forward to spending many hours and many dollars (don’t tell my husband) here! Cheers!
Hello Chandi, YOU ARE AMAZING! ! ! I did it! ! I actually knit a scarf for my granddaughter, that’s wearable! And, it’s all because of YOU! Before this, I had no idea how to knit, but because of your detailed, not rushed and a wonderful view of your hands, I was able to knit a scarf! I know that it’s very simple, but I couldn’t have done it without you. There is no way that I could ever articulate, how grateful I am. I’m just getting started, and thank you so very much for the patterns for mitts, and a hat. Should you have any other SIMPLE, very, very, simple patterns for infants, and toddlers, I would very much welcome them. Once again, YOU ROCK! ! Forever, your fan, Deborah ♡xo
Is it possible to get a written pattern for the finger crochet rug? I can’t remember it and I want to make one. Thank you, Courtnea
We don’t have a written pattern. However, on the blog post – https://blog.expressionfiberarts.com/2014/10/07/how-to-make-a-giant-crocheted-roving-rug-no-sew/ – we have the steps written down.
Hi Chandi, I will like to do the carpet. Where can I find the wool? Don’t see it on your store. Great website!! Myreil from Montreal, Quebec ??
You can find this by googling roving. Or you might be able to find some on etsy.com or check on ravelry.com
I love knitting sooo much. My friend’s think I am so crazy because I am a kid and i love knitting.I do it at my siblings practices all the time. But i am having trouble with the purl stitch any advice would be great.One last thing can you do a video on how to knit a design in to your project when changing colors.Thanks bye!
Crochet Latte Headband Pattern tutorial
Could you tell me the name of the wool you use in your beginner tutorial (the blue/purple wool)! I NEED this yarn!!! Absolutely gorgeous. Thank you for your videos. So happy I found them. I am a self taught crochetter and now looking to learn to knit. When you do the cast on long tail which line is around your thumb… Tail or yarn from the ball? Thank you!!! Erin
It was a color called peacock dewdrop. We don’t currently have it available, but we have a variety of colors that are similar to it. : )
Chandi- Would it be possible to get a crochet tutorial for a really simple solid flower coaster not using magic loop? I’ve seen videos on how to crochet a solid circle and I’ve seen videos using the scalloped edging and it should be really easy to combine the two but I’m not comfortable with crochet and really just want to see a video of it all done together. Thanks!
Nicole, we could do that at some point, yes. 🙂
I love the tutorials its how i learned so much thanks
Im a beginner and my kniting is very lose and I keep getting all of these loops every where can you help?
Beginner knitting. I’m glad to have found you on you tube. I watched several other instructors, but could not master theirs techniques. Your style help me begin with knitting. Hope to finish a scarf by ends of this year. Do you sell any Alpaca yarn?
Hello, Chandi! I am new at crocheting, like 2 weeks new 🙂 My daughter is creative and artistic however I am the opposite. I want to learn how to crochet for my daughter so we can create things together. So far, your videos have been helpful but I am still struggling. Can you recommend any books to assist me with learning? We both love your designs and yarn!!!
Aloha, Chandi! I’m new to your site and have just ordered and downloaded the Unending Love Knitted Blanket pattern. I’m fairly new to knitting (2 years) and so not a total beginner, but still have lots to learn. The blanket is a nice easy and quick pattern. I’m looking at the color yarns you have available and will be ordering as well. Question: I see you have the Tencel Sport Yarn…in your youtube video for the blanket you speak about using merino super wash. I’m confused as to this. Does it call for 2 separate types of yarn or just the Tencel. Thank you so much for your assistance and help.
By the way, I’m from Hawai’i and so happy to see that you enjoyed Maui. Maui no ka ‘oi! My son was born there before we moved over to the Big Island. Lived in Pukalani for a number of years. It is paradise. I moved to the mainland after 34 years in the islands. Snow….ugh! Aloha and mahalo nui loa. Lynn
Thanks so much for inquiring about the pattern. Yes, the merino tencel was the only yarn used to create the blanket. Thanks for taking a gander at the site and we hope you enjoy what you see. : )
I just started kitting yesterday and I’ve got a pretty good rhythm down. However, I’m somehow adding an extra stitch every time I get my stitches to the opposite needle, and I have no clue what I’m doing wrong. I started out with 15 yesterday and noticed I doubled the amount of stitches by this evening. Any idea what I could be doing?
Yes, it’s a common problem. Just check out the “fix” in my how to knit a headband video: https://blog.expressionfiberarts.com/2016/05/27/how-to-knit-a-headband-beginner-level/
Chandi, I am absolutely mesmerized when I receive your emails detailing the latest dazzling color-drenched yarns; however, I am quite stumped for what to make. A lot of your patterns are made in only solid colored yarns. Could you point me in the right direction to find patterns suitable for your variegated beauties?
Drooling and awaiting your reply.
Thank you! You can use our variegated yarns for any of our patterns actually. Just depends on the look you want. 🙂 Chandi
I was trying the creek bed wrap pattern today and needed some video or pictures to help me understand the stitch. All the references I found on line said the granite stitch and the moss stitch were the same thing. The moss stitch you describe in the pattern has no “stitch” (like single crochet), just slipped stitch and chain. Am I reading that right? And is there another name for what you are listing as the “moss stitch”. Thanks for the help and the patterns.
Laura, just ignore the granite/moss reference if that is confusing and just follow the stitches as written. You can also ask on our Ravelry forum if anybody is having similar issues! http://www.ravelry.com/groups/expression-fiber-arts
Hello Chandi! I am having a tough time doing the texture pattern on the Novello Shawl. Any help would be wonderful! I can’t find your email to try and email for help. Thank you!
e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
wherecan I find a list of the abbreviations you use in knitting patterns I understand M1 but what in M1R or M1L or pm or sm please send email email@example.com
Sallie, most patterns will write out what those mean for you. However, you can always google and it’ll show lots of descriptions! PM = Place Marker, SM = Slip Marker, M1R = Make one right, M1L = Make 1 left, etc. 🙂 I hope this helps! Sending an email now. Chandi
Hi, Chandi! Is it possible for you to show how you do the W&T in the Melting Transitions Scarf? Thank you!!
That is definitely something we can work on Diane.
An actress, singer, then an archaeologist, and finally an artist, and I’m an artist today! Yes, I was always very practical…
