The basics of knitting
Crochet chains are the starting point for lots of patterns — and they’re easy to learn!
If you’re excited about learning to knit, you might want to get started on a jumper straight away, or a multi-coloured project. You’ll be able to make projects like that soon enough, but it’s better to start with something simple to get the hang of basic knitting techniques.
When you knit, you use two needles to create a piece of fabric from a strand of yarn. You do this by knitting stitches: pulling loops of yarn through other loops using your knitting needles.
It might look complex, but it becomes much less intimidating once you’ve knit your first stitches!
