In Toronto’s Pearson International Airport Lucy had a long time to wait for her next flight. She was traveling with a friend and neighbor, Heather, who was also going to be Lucy’s roommate on the cruise. Thanks to smart-phone magic, they were able to hook up with some other friends that had arrived at Pearson from Victoria (B.C.), as well as some new friends (but old hands at craft-cruising) Heather and Ron from Winnipeg.  All of them were looking forward to the same very long overnight flight to Santiago, Chile.

After mastering the basics, one of the first ‘advanced’ techniques most knitters learn is how to do right- and left-slanting increases. In this video Lucy demonstrates her method for making these increases, as well as explaining how to count your stitches on increase rounds (and how to account for discrepancies).

If you don’t like casting on in the round using two double pointed needles (last week’s video), try this method of casting on using two circular needles! This method of casting on is particularly well suited to hats, since using circular needles make it easy to try the hat on for size.
