how to knit

Knitting is such a joy and there’s nothing better than being curled up under a blanket on the sofa during the autumn and winter months knitting away.

For those of you wanting to learn to knit, it may be something that is better learnt in person, so you can see close-up where the yarn and needles move together. But, if you want to get started straight away, here is a video showing a very basic knit. There is the issue of getting the stitches on to the needles first, so if you still need to do that, you may want to watch our “HOW TO CAST ON” tutorial video first and have a go at that.

Of course, we have loads of fabulous knitting projects and tutorials that you can have a go at, plus the kits to go with them. So, if you’ve had a go and you’ve got the bug and want to try your hand at a finished project, head on over to our knitting tutorials.

As always, if you have any questions or comments, we are here to help. Just holler at us at
