My first washcloth

Learn to KnitLearn to Knit with Karla’s Making It!

Have you even wanted to learn to knit? I have for a long time. I just love how the fabric turns out, the thinness and the lack of holes, as well as the fabulous coziness of it all! (Check out this week’s post on knitting for inspiration)

I have compiled a few easy patterns to help you learn, as well as the website that finally helped me “get it.”

First the patterns. If you already have a basic knowledge of knitting (knit and purl stitches, how to hold the needles and yarn, etc.) jump right in.

I started with washcloths and dishcloths. They work up fast and gave me such a sense of accomplishment I needed to keep going.

Here is my very first washcloth:

It’s not perfect.  There are a few mistakes. But to me, it is completely fabulous!! The knitting makes it so soft, squishy and drapy (is that a word?). I’m so proud!! It truly is easier than I thought!!

Here is the pattern and a few more to try out your knitting skills. If you are a really new knitter, scroll down and check out the links to How to Knit from Johnny Vasquez over at New Stitch a Day for help!

Need a little help whipping up a few of these beauties? I have a couple websites that I used to increase my knitting skills.

Craftsy has a TON of free and paid classes that teach basic and advance knitting techniques. ANNNNND they are having a sale right now!!

“This weekend only, we’re doing something we almost never do — all NEW online classes start at $14.99. That’s right! That just-released class you’ve been eyeing from your favorite instructor? It’s on sale at prices so rare, you definitely don’t want to miss out. Offer starts January 15, 2016 and ends at 11:59 PM MT on January 18, 2016.”

Another website that helped me a lot was New Stitch a Day! Johnny Vasquez has created so many helpful videos including his series entitled Knitting 101! Check him out!
