When I was 11, my mom taught me how to knit. Five years later, I’ve still only knitted scarves, but hey- I really love scarves!
In my video this week, I’ll be showing you how to cast on stitches and how to do a basic knit. I used the methods that are easiest to me, but there are many methods, so I might do a follow-up video sometime with some different ways to cast on and knit. My mom is an incredible knitter and she does much more advanced knitting projects like sweaters, socks and hats! I’m starting work at my mom’s yarn shop next week (for the summer) and so you can expect lots of yarn shop tours and tutorials! Knitting is really big in my family and I really hope that I can teach you guys a lot about it. It’s a great hobby and the outcome is the best part… clothes!
(You can see where yarn gets its start in last week’s video.)
