Knitting Stitches Library

These knitting stitch videos are perfect for beginners and expert knitters alike!

Knitting Stitches Library

Learning to knit is a lot easier one stitch at a time. That's why we compiled all of our videos that help you learn the different types of knitting stitches all in one place!

Starting with the four main stitches that beginners should know -- garter stitch, stockinette stitch, seed stitch (or moss stitch), and linen stitch -- you can combine and shift the stitches to create all kinds of amazing patterns.

It's amazing how many combinations you can make with just knitting and purling. Check out any of the knitting stitch video tutorials below, and let us know in the comments which ones are your favorites!

Knitting Stitches for Beginners

These four stitches are perfect to start with, especially garter stitch and stockinette stitch. These are used in so many different types of projects, and they're pretty easy to master.

Increases and Decreases

Now that you've got knitting and purling down, it's time to take it a step further. Increases and decreases are essential for all knitters to know, but they can seem a little intimidating at first. These two video tutorials make these staples of knitting a breeze.

Other Knit and Purl Combination Stitches

Once you've mastered the basics, these knit and purl combinations are a great next step. Whether you're learning the bobble stitch, trying your hand at condo knitting, or mastering the waffle stitch, these video tutorials below are great for those who want to try patterns that are more complex.

Ribbing and Cable Stitches

Ribbing and cable stitches are great for making sweaters, cardigans, and scarves alike. They're definitely a little more on the advanced side of the stitch spectrum, but the results that they produce are stunning. If you're looking to step up your knitting game, give one of these stitches a try, and you'll be a master knitter in no time.

Other Textured Stitches

Sometimes, you want your knitted fabric to have a little more... personality. That's where these textured stitches come in. Add bumps, waves, and color patterns to your knitting with any of these stitches.

For those of you who want to try to design your own patterns, these stitches are a great way to add fancy embellishments to the fabric that your pattern will create. Impressive!

Eyelets, Lace, and Feathering

Whether you're making a shawl, a soft sweater, or just adding some lacy edging to a scarf, the real test of a committed knitter is how well they can knit lace. I'll be honest, these stitches aren't always the easiest to master, but once you see how amazing they look, you'll be sold. With these kinds of stitches, yarn overs and eyelets in the fabric create intricate patterns that give the fabric character and really stretch the art of knitting to its limits.
