Knitting for Beginners

Are you looking forward to trying your hand at knitting for the first time? Or, perhaps you're an advanced-beginner who wants to learn new techniques. Whatever your reason, we have handpicked some of our most popular projects and aptly named the 'Knitting for Beginners'. 

Knitting for Beginners; Knitting Kits, Patterns and More

One of the first challenges you will encounter as you learn to knit will be the basic scarf using the common garter stitch, a simple project that will help you develop the basis of your knitting skills. However, there are many more projects to learn from, from knitted blankets, cushions, socks and even cardigans and toys.

If you're a little hazy on the basics, don't worry, the Deramores YouTube channel has lots of handy tutorials for those starting the craft of knitting for the very first time, with videos that demonstrate how to cast on, how to cast off and how to master some of the most common stitches.

Browse our full range of knitting patterns for beginners, knitting kits, books and KAL's right here and take advantage of the versatility of projects that you can create as a beginner knitter. Explore different weights and fibres with kits and patterns available in 2-ply, 4-ply, aran and DK (double-knit) or why not try your hand at quick and easy chunky-knits like this Wrap in Hayfield Bonus Super Chunky.

So, whether you're just starting out or are seeking to develop your existing skill set with more challenging patterns, we have something for you.
