Time to relax!

Stitch by stitch, knitting is both a meditative and calming. Taking up a pair of needles and some soft yarn can help reduce stress and anxiety. Once you get comfortable with the basic knitting techniques you’ll be able to keep your hands busy while you unwind.

Many knitters will have a simple stockinette project on the needles that they can work on without having to concentrate on it, and a second more complicated project to challenge themselves with too! Try basic beanies, scarves, or afghans if you’re looking for a project that’s totally relaxing to work on between meetings, on your lunch break, or while you spend a weekend with your favorite tv show.

Custom fit, just for you!

Being able to customize each project is the best part about knitting! Mix-and-match yarn, measurements, and finishes to get the perfect project every time.

Sweaters are great examples of endlessly customizable projects. Knit the sleeves and body longer or shorter to fit exactly as they should. Once you get comfortable with construction you can change necklines or swap stitch patterns with just a little quick math.

Make the perfect gift!

Handmade gifts are always special when every stitch is made with love and care. Knowing how to knit makes it easy to create personalized gifts for loved ones. Duplicate stitch makes it easy to add names or motifs to a simple project like Christmas stockings, sweaters, or hats!

New babies are a great time to break out the knitting needles and the extra soft yarn. Baby knits are a great time to try a new technique, stitch pattern, or yarn. They’re quick to knit and extra adorable every time.
