Jib-Thitiporn Chanawangsa

I love to knit and crochet.


Using yarn to create unique designs has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I was first inspired to learn crochet and knitting so I could make new and unique outfits for my dolls as a young girl. As I got older I lost interest in the dolls, but not in the yarn. The excitement I felt when I would take an idea and craft it into a new design was exhilarating.

Through this passion for design and love of all things yarn I set out on the road that lead to me start Knit by Jib. I am working diligently to create unique patterns for crafters to enjoy. Knitting and crocheting everything from hats, scarves and sweaters to dolls, blankets and even men's accessories, there is no limit to where imagination can bring us

Candy corn 6: decrease to make it tapper: step five, we start to decrease the number of stitches to make the have tape. Burbs like this. Now, we may until to this point and start to make it taper to the top. I'll show you how to do it. So desist a row 24. Start by move marker from left to right. For this round, we start with Mitt to together nature to get together. It's like same asked Unit, but didn't it two stitches together, like this? Two statue and unit here, then unit for 34 stitches. One to 3 30 Dream 34. Okay, we make 34 Nick. Then we do slips that Nick, this is slip slip, and we do it. This called slip slip, Nick. Then we put marker here When it two more stitches.
