Get Your Knit on with Ryan DeBonville

BY jessie pascoe 12/07/2012

A 101 to dive on in.

Ryan DeBonville, who makes exceedingly cozy scarves and hats, wasn’t a knitting natural—despite his grandmother’s best efforts. “I took an official class about 10 years ago, but I am basically self-taught,” he says. And as a result, his methods are a little, er, unconventional. Here, he shows us how to cast on—knitting-speak for “get the party started.” 

 

Step 1: Watch These YouTube Videos.

“What I didn’t have growing up that would have saved me a few years of trial and error are these YouTube videos. These are two clips [Ed: here and here!] I’ve been sending to people for years.”

"Its such a beatiful and calming haven and I am addicted to their waterlemon juice at breakfast. They also have Marmite, which I have a weakness for."

Step 3: Thread the Needle.
“The second step is to thread the knitting needle through the chain.

Step 4: Get Knitting.
“The final step in casting on is to begin knitting! Anytime I get stuck on a stitch or can’t get a piece quite right, I check back to YouTube.”
