Learning to Knit
Hello there :3
Well, i've decided id like to learn to knit. The weathers slowly getting colder, and theres a few things id like to make myself this winter.
I don't really want to buy a book, unless anyone knows any amazing ones...
Does anyone have any online tutorials/videos?
How did you learn to knit?
My nan taught me the basics when I was a kid. I know you don't want books but I can thoroughly recommend Knitting for Dummies (no offence)
and the Knitter's Bible by Claire Compton
I recommend finding a local yarn shop (if there's one near you) and stopping in to say hello! Yarn shop owners are often glad to help you out with learning, and sometimes they offer classes. Look around and see what you can find!
You might be able to find helpful tutorials online, but I know that for me personally, I learn something better if I have someone actually help me or show me.
Good luck! Knitting is a very rewarding endeavor!
There are quite a few knitting websites. some of them have free patterns and tutorials. A magazine is a cheaper option than books, there are loads in supermarkets these days.
I'm rubbish at knitting, I make holey dishcloths! Lots of luck
Hey i have a suggestion. If your anything like me ( impatient C: ) then you should try using quite big needles to start with. you see your work growing really quickly and if you start on small needles it feels like it takes forever and gets nowhere. Good luck!!!
There are links to a video tutorial on my scarf how to or just search for video jug and look in their knitting section.
I've tried to learn to knit like a 100 times, and still didn't get anywhere with it.
Somehow knitting and crocheting just not work for me. (
But I'll take a look at the stuff you guys posted, maybe this time...
Youtube demos are great.
A good beginner project would be using Jiffy Brand Thick and Quick yarn. Cast on about 10-12 and keep knitting until you have a scarf.
I am working on a few knitting tutorials on youtube. I've only done a few, and they aren't too good, but I finally got a better camera, so I hope to get the time to upload some more.
There are so many amazing knitting videos on youtube that I can't even compare to, so just browse around, they're really helpful for all knitters.
Hope this helps!
And I learned to knit in a knitting group I joined when I was 6.
Here is a free ebook
click on deposit files and then the clock that says download and
it will download as a rar file.Do you know how to open them.I have downloaded a lot of free ebooks that have been really helpful.
I taught my self the basics with the cheap how to knit book..that is all i can do is basics..lol.
