Learn to knit

If you’d like to learn how to knit, I suggest you start at your local yarn store. That’s the first place I’ve always gone for advice and tips on knitting patterns and supplies. There are also a lot of great websites and videos on YouTube for those who’d like to learn to knit. To start your learning journey, I recommend Tin Can Knits. They’ve got a great section on learning to knit and provide guided how-to tutorials.
