Why is My Knitting Curling?

Why is my knitting curling, and will blocking stop the curling? Two questions knitters often ask me. In this video, I address those questions, show you when curling is a good thing, and explain the difference between stitch combos that curl and those that don’t.

Information on things you’ll see in this video:
The alpaca hat I show in the video (not my pattern) can be found here, but it doesn’t look like the pattern is available anymore.

The gray cardigan I show in the video is a free pattern and video tutorial, and can be found here.

The gray cashmere swatch is from my Rodeo Drive Poncho pattern and tutorial.

I reference my Stellar Swatching video, which can be found here.

The basketweave swatch is from my Mimi Hooded Scarf pattern and tutorial.

The sugar cubes swatch is explained in a Fancy Stitch Combo video.

The One Row Scarf I reference at the end of the video can be found here (not my design).

My Ravelry page for the shawl I’m wearing (not my design), can be found here.

The nail polish I’m wearing is by Julep, color “London”.
