Learn to Knit (Or Teach Others)

Videos are a great way to learn how to knit or brush up on your skills. If you’re already comfortable with these basic skills, videos are an easy way to help teach others the fundamentals of knitting, even if they live far away from you! We’ve created four short videos to help you cast on, knit, purl, and cast off. If you prefer written directions, visit our Learn to Knit page for detailed instructions.

    I crochet. I’ve never been a big knitter, so when I feel the urge, I’m lost because I can’t remember how to cast on properly. Thanks for the vids!

    how about a video that shows continental style knitting (throwing with the left hand)

    I am trying to learn to knit and your cast on is the simplest I’ve seen. I do more crochet than knit so I forget how to cast on. I did manage to complete a homespun shawl in candy apple red and it is lovely and soft. It is a gift for someone very special-my daughter in law.
