Hello and thanks for stopping by simple-knitting.com.
Would you like to learn how to knit? Or maybe you've been looking for answers to some knitting questions. There is so much information on the web about knitting and for beginners, knitting information can get pretty confusing. I'll help you sift through it all.
You see simple-knitting is all about learning how to knit and understanding the basics. Why I'll even help you choose your first ball of yarn and knitting needles.
So sit back, relax and let's start learning to knit.
I'm so glad you're here.
Are you ready to dive in and get started?
Are you a little confused about how to start knitting? And are you wondering what you need to get started?
The great thing about learning to knit is that you don't need a lot of supplies. What I will show you is how to choose what you do need.
And I have created a page just for you: Beginning knitting This page walks you through those first steps of choosing some knitting yarn and needles.
Plus you'll find some great knitting information on things like:
So what's next? The best part...
My knitting instructions page provides you with links to all the knitting how to's. The most important ones to start with are listed below:
Practice knitting those for awhile and then you can simply move on to the other knitting lessons as you develop your knitting skills.
Take your time and just have fun knitting. You'll get it.
Beside learning how to knit, you will find other helpful resources as well such as knitting abbreviations and knitting terms which will help you understand some of the knitting jargon out there today.
You can have a look at some of the knitting tools and accessories they have to help with your knitting. My latest favorite are these little cuties. They're called locking stitch markers and they're just so handy.
Another fun thing you can do is check out some knitting stitch patterns. Once you know how to knit and purl stitches you can start knitting some of the knit and purl stitch patterns. These are fun to do. And it's always good practice. They're fun to look at too.
l'll let you in on a secret. This simple stitch pattern here is one of my favorites. The Andalusian stitch pattern is a great way to practice those knit and purl stitches.
Of course there are a few other knit and purl stitch patterns you can look at too. See which ones you like.
Make mistakes - little ones and big ones (for me they're all learning experiences - grumble)
Rip out their knitting
Want to toss their knitting across the room
Knit just a few m-o-r-e rows
Knit into the wee hours of the morning
Fall in love with knitting yarns
Begin hiding their yarn stash as it starts growing (closets, under the bed, in drawers no one looks in). Oh and remember no clear storage bins. Haha
Feel a great sense of pride
Feel happy when their knitting needles are in their hands making something
Knitting is supposed to be fun. Don't take it too seriously. Have fun knitting, try new things, experiment.
