I have been knitting for years.. I learned at a Sears knitting class for mom's to get away from the house, children etc..Was good therapy. anyway, you can probably purchase a beginners knitting book with so many wonderful, easy ideas at Michaels or Etsy. If that fails, look at your goodwill or flea markets...Good luck

what is a criss cross stitch and also what is a knit hook? EL

I would love this pattern if it were for knitting needles. How do we convert to knitting needles or is it even possible. I get very frustrated, find something I really like and find it is for a knitting loom. Please! Help!

Can anyone translate this into a pattern using knitting needles??
