Why Read A Knit Blog?

Knitting blogs are an excellent free resource for knitters of all skill levels. Whether you’re a beginner looking for how to cast on or slip a stitch or an experienced knitter seeking how to conquer brioche or intricate lace, there’s a blog out there that can help you achieve your goals.

These knit blogs cover everything from basic techniques and tips to advanced and complex patterns, as well as helping you connect to the amazing global knitting community.

Knitting bloggers share their knowledge, expertise, and passion to help knitters learn and grow in the craft.

How to Find Beginner-Friendly and Advanced Knitting Blogs

Some knit blogs cater specifically to beginners, offering detailed tutorials on basic stitches and patterns, while others focus on more advanced techniques such as lace knitting, brioche knitting, or fair isle colorwork.

Often you’ll be able to identify beginner-friendly blogs by works like “easy,” “simple,” or “for beginners.”

No matter which on you’re looking for, knit blogs often include step-by-step instructions alongside high-quality photographs to help guide you along the way.

One of my favorite things about knitting is that no matter how long you’ve been in the knitting game, there’s always room for growth and learning as a knitter.
