Have you all heard about Tangi? It’s a platform for short videos on all kinds of DIY topics and a lot of the yarnie bloggers you know and love are there – including me! And using their short format, you can easily learn to knit, or refresh your dormant knitting skills without spending a whole lot of your hard won free time.
One of the things I appreciate about the format is that all the videos are less than 2 minutes each, and most are under 60 seconds. If you are a visual learner you could learn to knit from my videos (or learn other things from me and from other folks!), and if all you need is a quick visual refresher because you learned to knit in the distant or not so distant past, these short and to the point videos might be all you need – and save you weeding through two million longer-than-you-need videos on YouTube.
Tangi is a project from Area 120, an in-house business incubator at Google.
So here are a few of the videos I made for the platform – if you love this format feel free to check out Tangi, and please give me a follow if you do!
Let’s start with the long-tail cast-on –
Next let’s look at the knit stitch, and the purl stitch.
And now a bind-off!
I have several other short knitting videos there, including increases and decreases, additional cast-ons and bind-offs, and even a few stitches. Some of my other videos are focused on crochet topics, like join-as-you-go granny squares, and there are some sewing videos too!
If you have some other topics you’d like a quick video on, please let me know in the comments below!
And coming soon, I may have another knitting platform to share with you, but shhhhhhh it’s currently a secret!
