How to Knit
There isn’t a lot to learn before you too are a knitter. Once you have mastered holding your knitting needles and you have learnt the knit basics, such as: casting on, knitting, purling and casting off, you have become a member of the worldwide knitting community. In essence knitting is not much more then creating a series of loop of yarn together to make a fabric. The loops are held on a needle and, while working, transferred to the other needle. These loops can have different formats and are called knitting stitches. Many books have been published at the subject of knitting and this can be quite overwhelming or even intimidating for the novice knitter. Therefore we have made our knitting videos. You can now learn to knit with our basic video tutorials on knitting. So grab your knitting needles, a nice big bobbin of Zpagetti fabric yarn and get started with our knit instruction videos. The movie clips are filmed steadily and played in slow motion so you can easily follow the knit moves. There is no talk or music in our knit videos, you will not get distracted. This makes our knitting tutorials very effective. All the basic knit stiches are covered, but we also have instruction videos for more challenging knitting techniques such as left and right cables.
With a little perseverance, anyone can learn to knit within a few hours or so. We advise you to start with a straight forward knitting project such as a hat or scarf, before you move on to the more elaborate knitting patterns. With a long straight piece you can practise your knitting skills and try out different knitting stitches. At Hoooked you find will all the inspiration you need to get started: we have the best knitting kits and the biggest collection of recycled fabric yarns across the globe. So get started and learn how to knit!
