Thinking about learning how to knit? Welcome!

Knitting is making fabric from interlocking loops of yarn. Each loop counts as one stitch. Knitting uses two needles, as opposed to crochet which uses one hook.

The first thing you should knit is a scarf, as it is a simple rectangle that keeps growing. To get started, the only materials you will need are two skeins of yarn (in the same color), one pair of knitting needles, and an instructional booklet. That’s it!

Our knitting instructor, Kate Clifford, has selected the tools perfect for someone who's brand new to master the fundamentals!

The calming, curative, therapeutic benefits of knitting have been scientifically proven time and again to reduce stress and increase pleasure and well being. Enjoy!
