Learning to Knit

Many of my friends have expressed an interest in learning to knit. I’m going to do my best to share what I know, and it all begins with the videos I used to teach myself.

There are many more videos out there now than when I began learning to knit a few years ago.

This video series from Studio Knit shares everything you need to know to get started with knitting. Start with video one and watch the entire playlist.

Several other knitting channels I enjoy are The Casting on Couch and Very Pink Knits.

A scarf is a wonderful beginner project because it provides you with an opportunity to practice the basics of knitting. I would suggest starting with a scarf. It’s a great project to work on while watching Netflix. Here’s an awesome video for starting your first scarf.

If you’re looking for a new project or hobby, I would suggest knitting. At first it will be overwhelming. There’s a lot of language you may not understand. You will understand the more you practice and get engaged by watching videos or visiting knitting blogs or sites, such as Ravelry.┬áDon’t give up!

Feel free to ask me any questions as they arise. I will try to answer them the best I can, or I will try to find the right resource.

Happy knitting!
