Thinking about learning to knit?

Back when I was first learning to knit I was overwhelmed by the number of websites and resources I found when googling the term. Knowing where to start is often the hardest part. I mean, there’s knit and purl…but once you’ve got that down, where do you go from there?!

Learning to knit - Shortrounds Knitwear

I’ve compiled a list of sites and a whole bunch of resources you can use to help start you on your journey into knitting, find some of my personal favourite pattern houses, and learn more advanced techniques. I continue to reference and visit these sites daily and weekly, and I’m so grateful to all of these websites and the wonderful people behind them that helped me get into knitting!
