I'd like to learn to knit, but I have no idea where to start. Does anyone have links for places to learn the basics? I mean true newbie, never picked up a pair of needles before kind of basics. TIA!

http://stitchguide.com shows about every stitch there is and has video clips to boot. If you are a book kind of person I hear that Vouge Knitting is a great resource. I'm getting it for Christmas so I will find out shortly.

ETA the Vouge Knitting book is pricey but you can use the 50% off code or coupon from Joann to get it cheaper.

I would check with your local library to see if they have videos/dvd's or even books for that matter on learning to knit


Another option is if you have a LYS (local yarn shop) sometimes they have classes or weekly "knitting groups" that you can chat with, visit and learn new techniques

I have wanted to learn how to knit for the longest time. I tried to learn from a book but it did not work for me. I guess I am a hands on type of person. I finally went down to the local yarn shop. They taught me the basics. And you can go there with any questions or problems. They also have Knitting Night every Monday. It is a wonderful atmosphere. Besides learning how to Knit, I also met a great group of women. I would personally suggest going to a local yarn shop and asking if they have classes.

I have totally enjoyed it. I am a beginner but I have made scarfs, baby blankets, and a hat for myself. I would like to some day graduate and make my son a pair of longies.

Good Luck!

Nancy
