Repairing Your Knits – Darning

Darning is a strong, reinforced repair for a hole or threadbare area. In this video, I demonstrate a couple of the ways you can use darning to fix a hole in any knitted piece.

The yarn I used for demonstration is leftover worsted-weight scraps, mostly Cascade 220.

My silver ring is actually a knitting needle gauge, and can be found here.

My nail polish is by Julep, color “Janie”.

  1. Hi Staci
    I love your site. I have been a very basic knitter for years. I just knitted your log cabin for a baby and it was beautiful. Loved by me and the Mom and Dad. I have a question, another baby blanket needs to be knitted. I have about 14 colours of beautiful Rowan wool. I thought about garter mitred squares with Kaffe Fassett crazy patterns in strips between the squares. That way I get pattern but not too much thickness from the fair isle or intarsia. Plus I still get the lovely squashy softness and stretch of garter stitch. Any ideas, advice?
