What should I know about knitting?

There are multiple types of knitting such as:

  • Hand knitting, the traditional method using knitting needles.
  • Machine knitting, using a machine to speed up the process.
  • Arm knitting, which is a newer technique using your arms instead of needles.
  • Crochet, related craft using a hook instead of needles.

Now that you know the types of knitting let’s talk about some tips.

  • Start with basics by learning the garter stitch and stockinette stitch.
  • Be sure to choose the right yarn for your project. Select soft, easy-to-work-with yarn while you are starting out. Keeping an inventory of your yarns will help you know which is best for your project.
  • Practice makes perfect. Don't be discouraged by mistakes, learn from them.
  • Remember you can always join a community. Look for online forums or local knitting groups for support and inspiration.
