Even if you have been knitting years, patterns can be difficult to interpret and understand.

One of the things that trip a lot of knitters up, and I have to confess to getting overwhelmed myself at times with more complex patterns, is trying to absorb too much of the instruction at once. By this I mean in something like this it can look a bit daunting:
K1, yo, k1, *yo, k1, yo, k4tog, p5, sl3, k1, psso, [yo, k1] 4 times; rep from *, ending last rep with k2tog instead of final k1.
I have found the best way is to break this down to taking one step at a time by just splitting it up ‘comma’ by ‘comma’. I would do the first K1, then move on to the instruction before the next comma (yo), then the next comma (k1) working my way along the row in this way. For me, this simplifies what can seem to be a confusing set of instructions.
It is one thing to knit a garment but what can make or break it is the quality of the finishing. It can make the difference between having an amateurish looking garment or one that is a stunning, eye-catching and when you think about the many hours spent in the knitting it is well worth taking the time to get the quality finish.
We will be putting up some finishing ideas here from time to time.
For the perfect seam, grafting makes the best finish and thanks to KnittingHelp.com here is the link which shows this technique called Kitchener stitch:
