It seems like a lot of our general Yarn Punk community is primarily crocheters. Many of who have been one to admired knits, but are a little too intimidated by the thought of knitting. While knitting can seem like a scary hobby to get into, generally speaking it really just comes down to getting more practice. One of the great things about beanies/toques, besides just being cute and warm, is that they are a smaller project for you to work on and practice with.
Our Yarn Punk team member, who is also a crocheter and knitter herself, Sarah Aubree of Sarah’s Twists, has been generous enough to bring us a super easy beginner friendly project to help get you started with knitting. Let’s get some practice in with our knits, afterall it is nice to have another hobby under your belts. Let us say hello to a friendly face around here!
Welcome back Sarah!
I love being a part of the Yarn Punk Communities where I have so many Yaddies out there in the fibre community. I want to say a huge thank you to Vincent for having me be on the team here on Yarn Punk. One thing that I have really loved about being a member in the fibre community, is how many people have messaged me saying that I have been an inspiration to start knitting coming from a crochet hobby. I want to tell you that it is so much easier than it really seems.
Crocheting is working and finishing one stitch at a time to create a row. Knitting is worked by a continuous row of stitches, making knitting a little more difficult to be able to frog back on. Two things that primarily make up knit garments are you knits and purls. The Knits and Purls Beanie is quite literally just that. Helping you practice your stitch work and tension, to be able to work into those more complicated projects. So let’s get started!
