Decreases video finished for Netting, More or Less

Last week I gave you a sneak-peak at the introductory Increases video. I just finished another introductory video. It’s about Decreases.

Why decreases?  Well, since last week covered the More in the class title, it seemed only fair to look at the Less portion of the title.

Both of these videos talk about the process of  making increase or decrease stitches and then show several different stitch patterns that use either increases or decreases.

You want more than explanations?  You want me to actually show you how to move your hand and where to place your netting shuttle or needle to make the stitches?  Okay, I’ll do that – in the class.   Besides, currently those videos are still in the creation stage.  I’ll let you know when they are done.

In the meantime, while you’re waiting for the class to be completed, here’s a sneak-peek at the introductory Decreases video.



I’d love to know which is your favorite decrease sitich.

Let me leave you with a question.  What happens if you put an increase and a decrease together?


First Video Finished for “Netting, More or Less” class

Hurray!  The  first video for the new netting class is done!  I’ve still got over a dozen more to go, but this one is done.

“What’s the video about?” you ask.

Increasing.  It explains the “More” in the title of the class.    It gives some background, discusses increasing in netting, explains some of my terms, and shows some of the stitches created by just increasing.

I was going to be mean, give you all this hype about it, and then say you had to take the class to see it.  I was. . . and then I realized that this video would be a perfect introduction to this class, kind of a preview.

So. . . I thought I’d let you see it.

Now, which of  the increase stitches is your favorite?
