What is Tight-Tension Cashmere Knitting?

by Tyler Hawkins

Tight-tension knitting is a knitting technique in which the knitter creates a more dense and firm fabric by pulling the cashmere yarn more tightly as they knit. This can be achieved by using a smaller knitting needle size or applying more pressure to the cashmere yarn as it is being worked. Tight-tension knitting can be useful for creating warm and sturdy cashmere garments or accessories, but it can also make the knitting process more strenuous and time-consuming.
