Septembers “12 New Things” goal: Learn How to Knit.
I learned how to knit a few years ago while working a a summer camp. I haven’t picked up knitting needles since! I’m hoping that I’ll be able to sew a few simple winter scarfs to give as gifts this Christmas.
I found a great resource for knitting and wanted to share:
Melissa from has a passion for knitting and she shares her talent at Monday Morning Knit. She has a great series on learning how to knit, that I plan on using to learn some basic knitting skills. In this series she covers some of the basics:
Step 1: Slip Knot
Step 2: Casting On
Step 3: Basic Stitches – Knit, Purl, and Slip Stitch
Step 4: Increasing
Step 5: Decreasing
Step 5: Binding Off
She also has a Free Learn to Knit PDF that you can download.
** also my friend Rachel shared a great resource for knitting patterns:
“[Ravelry.com] has good amount of free patterns on here that I like to use. You just have to make an account. Not all the patterns are free though, but there are still some excellent free ones. https://www.ravelry.com
I’m also going to look into taking a class at a local knitting store. I can’t wait to show off my very first scarf!
Are you participating in 12 New Things? I’d love to hear how things are going.
