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


Knitting is a great way to occupy time in a waiting room. Did you learn from videos or did someone teach you?
Pick out a pattern for something you’d like to knit and we’ll all be happy to help with any questions.

I’m from South Africa, a small town, Stilbay.
Was taught by my mother-in-law of German descent - knit form graphs and adjusts patterns to suit me.
I’m also a crocheter and a quilter.

Usually I can figure a pattern out, but this one has me stumped.:slight_smile:


That happens to all of us at one time or another. Click the +New Topic button in the upper right of most pages and post your question with a pattern link if possible. It helps to see a photo even if the details aren’t available. You can quote a line or two of the pattern just not large portions due to copyrights.



I’m Toni from North Eastern Arizona. I’ve been knitting since 1955, former LYS owner, pet-parent to two rescued former racing greyhounds and Boogie…pedigree undeclared, but probably American Staffordshire mix…when asked what type of dog Boogie is I usually just say, “He’s a black dog” :smiley:

Welcome, Toni! You will have fun here! :smiley:


Hi. I’m new to this site but not to knitting. I’ve been knitting and crocheting off and on for years - my mother taught me to knit when i was pretty young, and a friend’s mom taught me to crochet. I picked up crocheting again a few years ago when I needed a project. Now I’m eagerly awaiting my first grandchild (!), and the sweater I picked out to make is knitted. Since it’s been a while I find I have some questions, and this looks like a good place to find answers!
