Betty Mouat Video Tutorials
Demonstrated by Melanie Patton.
Part 1: no-purl garter stitch
In the first clip, Melanie demonstrates Susan Stevens’ nifty and innovative trick for working garter stitch in the round without purling. This method allows you to knit the lace pattern in traditional Shetland fashion, using garter stitch throughout.
Part 2: Working with several colours
When knitting the lace section of Betty Mouat you will be working with three colours, and, if you are using the no-purl method, six balls of yarn. In this clip, Melanie demonstrates a neat and simple method for keeping control of your yarns, carrying them up the back of the work.
Part 3: Cockleshell Lace
In this clip, Melanie demonstrates rows nine and ten of the lace pattern, where the “cockleshell” is formed.
