A Simple Guide to Knitting

A Simple Guide to Knitting

Knitting is a very relaxing and satisfying craft. You can make throws, afgans, hats, socks, totes and so much more for yourself or to give as gifts. Best of all you don’t need to invest a ton of money to start knitting!


You’ll need knitting needles. Knitting needles are made from a variety of materials including plastic, wood, bamboo, and metal. Test out several different types of knitting needles. Knitting needles also come in a variety of sizes that are displayed as numbers (1, 2, 3 and so on). The larger the number, the bigger in diameter the knitting needle is. For beginners it is easier to use the bigger knitting needles.

i dont know what a knitting loom looks like so i can not compare it to a knitting board.

@dianaparker 9923343: A knitting board is similar to a knitting loom. These usually look like a board or a frame with a number of pegs that are used for knitting. Hope this helps! -- Editor of FaveCrafts
