nb. To use a knitting blank remove the thread that is woven through the last row. This needs to be the last row rather than the first or the blank will not unravel properly on the end stitches. If you start at the wrong end it will be quickly evident, no harm done, just start again at the other end.

Knitting from a blank is like knitting with any unravelled yarn resulting in a kinked yarn and kinked stitch. This will block or steam out of your project so don’t be alarmed!
