The handy booklet that came with your kit shows you how to do the basics in knitting: slip knots, casting on, the knit stitch, casting off. 

Below you’ll find longer versions of these same tutorials as well as additional techniques to help you expand beyond the basics!

A slip knot gets the yarn onto your knitting needles. It is almost always the first step before casting on. Already a slip knot pro? Go ahead and skip ahead to casting on!

Casting on creates the very first row of your project. We’ll show you the backward loop cast on, a great beginner-friendly technique that is quick, easy, and creates a nice sturdy edge for your knits!

Psst.. you can also see a whole page of other cast on techniques here!

The knit stitch is the very first stitch to learn! It’s so important that the whole craft is named after this technique. 

Also called casting off this is how you get the stitches off your needles while creating a finished edge at the same time. We’ll show you the easiest way to bind off in this quick tutorial!

Now that you’ve got the project off your knitting needles it’s time to sew your seams shut! Each project in this kit requires either one or two quick seams, this tutorial will show you how to use the mattress stitch to seam your finished knit!

The very last step in a project is weaving your yarn tails in! Learning how to properly thread your ends into your fabric will mean that your project looks fully finished and will hold up to years of wear and tear. 

An optional but oh-so-fun way to finish a hat or headband is to put a pom pom on it! Making a pom pom is both easy and a great way to use up extra yarns.

Learn how to make a super fluffy pom pom using a pom pom maker in this step-by-step tutorial.

When you knit every row, back and forth, you’re creating something called “garter stitch” fabric. Every project in the Learn to Knit Kit uses garter stitch to create super bouncy, squishy fabric. You can learn more about garter stitch with this handy article and tutorial!


Once you’re familiar with all the basic techniques, we’ve got some more for you to try. The tutorials below are our most recommended next-step tutorials to help you expand your skills. After that, check out the rest of our “Knitting for Beginners” tab above for even MORE great content!

Sooner or later you’ll find yourself running out of yarn and needing to attach a new ball of yarn to keep going! This technique for joining a yarn strands is quick and easy, perfect for beginners.

The purl stitch is the second stitch to learn. Once you learn how to knit and purl you’ll be able to whip up almost any basic beginner-friendly knitting pattern.

Stockinette stitch is a smooth, flat knit fabric that is used in a huge number of knitting patterns and will look very familiar. Once you know how to knit and purl, you’ll be able to make stockinette stitch projects easily!
