Welcome to the KnittingHelp forum! ...Introduce yourself!


Hi, I’m new to the site, I now have grand children so I may need a little help now.
I’m sure I’ll benefit from all your posts


I am from Finland, so English is not my mother tongue.

Some years ago I decided that I want to learn how to knit. I never was taught how to do it as a child and it was something new for me. Most of all I wanted socks, so that became my very first project. Since then I have knitted mostly socks and even coming up with own ideas for the heels.

My knitting style has been going through some phases. When I begun knitting I watched some YouTube videos and begun the first sock as a thrower. At some point halfway through the first sock I switched to the Continental style as it felt much more natural for me. Some socks later I took one step further and switched to Continental combined styled (aka Russian / East European style). After switching to this style, I no longer hate to knit ribbing.


Hello from the Czech Republic,
we would like to invite you to our new website knitting.cz.

We created the site with my boyfriend for my mommy, who has been involved in crocheting, knitting and various creative activities all her life.
The site was to serve only as a blog with mum’s projects at the beginning. However, in the end a comprehensive social network was created, especially for lovers of handicrafts, but also
cooking, reviewing, discussing. You can add your own projects with us (with or without patterns), recipes, create new groups and discussions, products to review, add posts and comments. If you like our site, we will be very happy you to join us.
We look forward to your visit.
Have a nice day :rose:

Hi, I’m new at this site. I’ve been knitting for about six years but still not very good. I try and tear up, or tink, then try again. I’m handicapped so can’t get out around people often, just learning by trial and error. Thanks to all of you for being here.


Welcome! Knitting is a bit of ripping back and then going forward again. Eventually it gets better but the tinking (or large scale ripping back) is never completely left behind. The important thing is to keep trying. We’ll all be happy to help with whatever you do.


Thank you!

This is the completed coat from the pattern that I had difficulty in figuring out. It turns out that my counting was off - I should have worked over a multiple of 4 stitches to keep my pattern straight instead of 5 :slight_smile:


How elegant and lovely! Beautifully done.

Loving this site! I’ve never needed help like this before, I can usually decipher strangely worded patterns myself just fine! I perused the already existing topics, found some helpful things, but none that answered my big questions so posted my own topic with the instructions looking for some insight and am just waiting for a reply!

Excited to have found a community of knitters!


Welcome to the forum!
We all run into those strangely worded patterns now and then. This is a good group for trying to figure them out. Glad to have you join us.


Hello guys, I love knitting and I’m thinking of getting this dog summer clothes as an example for my project because I think that pet likes to enjoy their warm summer days on the water that’s the reason why I joined this lovely community. :slight_smile:


Hello Franz,
Because of your nick I assume you are a male. I am also a male and I begun knitting because I wanted to also do something while my wife knits. Now I and my wife are able to spend time together while both of us are productive.
