Videos to Learn Basic Knitting Stitches

Learn how to knit with simple, easy to follow videos! This is a great resource to learn all of the basic knitting stitches that you need. Knitting for beginners can be a bit intimidating but with enough time, practice and patience, anyone can do it.

I recommend that you start with the first video, casting on, and follow the order of the videos. You can watch each individual separately until you feel you’ve masted that technique. There is more information on making swatches (knitting stitch practice pieces) under each specific stitch.
