Knitting Techniques

I hope that you will find this library of Knitting techniques useful. I have started with some of the basics for those of you new to the wonderful craft of knitting and then have included a variety of different techniques such as making buttonholes,pockets, shoulder pads, knitting with circular and double pointed needles, making ponpoms and fringes etc. 

I  will also be including  various you tube videos of different techniques which I hope you will find useful and interesting. I will be changing these regularly as well as adding new techniques as time permits so be sure to check back here regularly.

If you have any particular technique which you think will be of interest or use to our visitors then we would love to hear from you.
