Settle in, knitters. Today is the day when we embark on a new year of cool techniques, all with the cool and collected Jen Arnall-Culliford leading the way.
Confident Knitting features a new project paired with a new technique every month. Let’s get started with an elegant, tidy technique: the folded hem. (Bonus: it features some of our very favorite yarn, Zauberball and Zauberball Crazy, just arrived.)
This elegant technique opens up a world of hem, cuff, and edge treatments beyond ribbing. Jen’s video at the top of the page shows you how to work it step by step, starting with a favorite provisional cast-on.
The Design of the Month?
Flux Handwarmers! Martina Behm’s charming design showcases the folded hem at the cuffs.
Folded hems can also add a bit of elegance to socks, hats, and sleeves, and to the hem of a sweater. As Jen notes, “You will find yourself looking at projects and wanting to experiment!”
With Jen’s tutorials, you can experiment with complete confidence.

How to Get in on Confident Knitting
Jen and Jim Arnall-Culliford have assembled everything you need to join the fun right here.
And the conversation in the Arnall-Culliford Knitwear Knitalong Hub is never ending and full of help.
(We will have the print book available in September, but honestly, we really hope you’ll jump in now and support Jen and Jim. They are a tremendous part of the knitting world, and we admire what they’re up to so much.)
