We recommend watching the lessons, below, in the order shown. Begin with our “Introduction to Knit Fabrics” and “Knit Fabric Principles” lessons. You will learn about knit structure, stretch ratio and how to choose the best knit fabric for a particular design. Then, apply this knowledge and learn how to cut and sew knits with “Knit Necklines”, “Knit Seam Finishes” and “Knit Hem Finishes”. Learn (or improve upon) your hand knitting skills with “Knitting a Trellis Lace Stitch” and “Knitting a Raised Rib Stitch”. Complete your knit studies by learning how to create a hand-knit poncho scarf (“Knitting a Poncho Scarf”) and a knit sweater (“Knitting a Sweater”).
