Knitting Sideways

by April J. Mills

 
This method allows you to give old designs a new life when you ad them to a sideways knit garment. It also gives you the advantage of being able to knit larger garments where the number of needles used equals the length and the rows knit equals the width. This type of knitting sideways allows you to knit most types of garments from vests and sweaters to skirts.
