The Most Popular Tutorials of 2017!

If you’ve always wanted to learn to knit you’ve come to the right place! From beginner to advanced, we have brilliant video tutorials to help you on your knitting journey, to teach you fabulous techniques to boost your skills.

Here are our most popular tutorials of 2017!

Learn How To Finger Knit

Join the fun and try knitting with your fingers! Finger knitting is perfect for whipping up a fast cowl or scarf, and its large stitches can be a great introduction to knitting structure. It stands up perfectly well on its own as a craft, but it can serve as an introduction to teaching children to knit, and be a great way to be creative if you are struggling with painful hands and holding needles. This tutorial from Anne Weil will show you a variety of techniques to get you started in finger knitting.

How To Knit – Bands and Borders

If you’re going to add button or edging bands to your work, you’ll need to attach them evenly. In this video, we’ll show you how to pick up the correct number of stitches along your work, by using pins and a coloured length of yarn.

How To Knit – Mattress Stitch

Watch as we show you how to use the mattress stitch to join two pieces of knitting together. This stitch allows you to make an invisible and flexible seam.

How To Knit – Purl Stitch

Most knitting is made up from knit and purl stitches. In this video we’ll show you how to purl, which will open up a world of new stitches as you progress!

How To Knit – Stranded Fair Isle

Knitting with different colours is fun. The simplest way to introduce colour is to work in stripes, working with one colour at a time to create a single fabric. Stranded knitting involves carrying the yarn not in use loosely across the back of the work. It is best not to carry over more than three stitches at a time to avoid loops that can get caught.
