In recent years, podcasts have become the preferred method of entertainment and information for many people. Never heard of a podcast or listened to one before?
In short, a podcast is a digital audio file available on the Internet for downloading or streaming to a computer or mobile device. Podcasts are typically available as a series and new installments are automatically received by subscribers.
You can easily listen to many of these podcast episodes for free through the links below. In addition, if you have an iPhone, you can download the Podcasts application or similar applications like Stitcher that work on any device to store your episodes.
Now that we’ve covered the basics, all that’s left to do is pour yourself a warm cup of tea and relax on the sofa, pull out your supplies to start a knitting pattern, or begin your commute to work as you plug in your headphones and listen to the 10 best knitting podcasts highlighted below (in no particular order).
1. Knitmore Girls
This lighthearted podcast (not to be mistaken with the popular television series Gilmore Girls) is hosted by mother-daughter duo Gigi and Jasmin. The ladies share their creative take on all things knitting by discussing whatever projects they’re currently working on each week before diving into popular segments such as “When Knitting Attacks!” and “Mother Knows Best.”
Gigi and Jasmin also provide honest book and product reviews. The Knitmore Girls express their unique take on knitting via the special bond shared by mothers and daughters.
2. The Yarniacs
Sharlene and Gayle’s twice monthly podcast is a friendly and conversational approach to knitting. This well produced knitting podcast features segments such as “What Are You Wearing?” as well as frequent interviews with knitting personalities.
These friends use such detailed descriptions of patterns, yarns, and finished pieces that you often forget you’re simply listening to an audio file and can’t actually see what they’re describing.

Topics such as quilting, bird watching, and all things Scottish can also be found throughout the episode archives.
5. Never Not Knitting
Pattern designer and host Alana Dakos signed off the airwaves in September 2016 after completing 100 episodes, but you can still listen to all the knitting goodness via her website and iTunes.
