  • This kit comes with everything you need to knit the adorable bobble beanie from Knit Meets Knot. Need a little help? Just tune into the Beanie episode for a tutorial!
  • Super soft and incredibly chic, the Comfort in Lines Shawl is the best of all worlds. Combining color and texture changes with contemporary line work, this cozy accessory is comforting from first knit to first wear.
  • Counterbalance comes easy with these adorable cable-knit mittens that can be worn every which way! Knit from the bottom up in the round with a single stacked cable running along the inner wrist up to the base of the thumb. Since the mittens are mirror images and the detailing is fluid, you can wear them left, right, front, or back—whatever suits your personal style!
  • Everyone talks about sweater weather—but what about slipper weather? These multicolor, mukluk-style Alpine Adventure slippers are knit seamlessly in the round (no sewing or finishing required!). The high tops feature spruce trees, while the body uses a Stockinette stitch, and the knit-and-slip pattern automatically creates the colorwork without the fuss of Fair Isle knitting.
  • This super-cropped cardi is sass in sweater form! Knitted in Reverse Stockinette, the sleek silhouette has ribbed cable columns to frame the neck, with accent drop shoulders and three-quarter length sleeves. And even with all of that detailing, the cropped length makes this a quick knit.
  • Release the confetti and get party-ready with these colorful socks that are cute as can be. Not only are they bright and cheerful, they also have a little lace rib which adds an extra dose of fun to the playful colorway. Even better? They’re easy to knit!
  • Get ready for ski season with this oh-snow-adorable crew neck sweater. Worked from the top down with raglan-style sleeves, the design features a lower-third snowflake pattern that adds an impressive pop of color above the hem.
  • Flip cable patterns on their head with this unexpected design! Combining luxurious alpaca yarn and simple four-piece construction, this sweater pairs a modern geometric feel with the shaping of a classic pullover. With a boat neck and split hem, the sweater works up flat for easy seaming. Even better: it’s easily customized to any length!
  • With a honeycomb motif, the Iva sweater is as sweet as can be! The easy design features a simple cable pattern and a boat neck: First, the cable pattern yoke is worked horizontally; then, you work body and sleeves in rounds directly from the live stitches of the yoke. The end result is a comfy-cozy cabled creation with head-to-toe texture!
  • A tisket, a tasket, a basketweave basket? This tongue-in-cheek knit kit is fun, easy, and adorably meta: you’ll walk away with two baskets in—yes—a basketweave stitch.
  • If you’ve been on a perpetual quest to find the perfect beanie, look no further: The Rows of Purls beanie is textured and loose, with purls, bumps, and twists that will enliven your knitting! The design features a universally flattering slouch while a twisted rib brim helps it stay in place securely. Best for basic-advanced knitters who are familiar with working in the round.
  • An effortless summer wrap is one of those accessories that everyone should have in their closet—and now, you can knit one up to your ideal specifications! The Roving Summer Wrap kit starts at the back of the neck, and then works seamlessly from the top-down, so you can choose your perfect length and overall look.

  • Blue bucket-style knitting bag holding yarn and needles
    Are you sure to want to remove this?
    Most knitters will tell you that having a good project bag is essential — you can store all the necessary needles, notions and, you know, the actual knitting, so that when you're ready to stitch everything is ready and waiting. Plus, if you have multiple WIPs (works in progress), keeping each one in its own bag is the key to staying organized. And while you could buy a project bag (and there are tons of cute ones out there), we're all makers here — so why not stitch up a few of your own?

    We've all been there: you have a baby shower to attend, and need to whip up a handmade gift, stat. Never fear — these adorable baby socks are quick, cute, and the parents-to-be will love them. The best part? They don't take much yarn. In fact, you probably have enough sock yarn leftover from the last pair you knit yourself!

    Two color-brioche knitting gets a lot of love, but one-color brioche can be just as satisfying. Take this brioche ribbed scarf — pure, squishy, scarf heaven. If you've never tried brioche knitting before, this is a great way to get a feel for it.

  • gray knit cowl with yellow edge
    Are you sure to want to remove this?
    Two-color brioche often grabs the spotlight, but we're big fans of the one-color versions, too. This solid cowl is super simple, and will teach you how to knit brioche in the round (it's pretty similar to one-color brioche knit flat).

    Let’s be clear: knitting is a year-round sport, and we're in favor of always having a little something to stitch on no matter what the weather. But if that cabled wool sweater you were so gung-ho about when the snow was falling is suddenly making you sweat, these are the alternatives that'll keep you busy — and cool.

    Reminiscent of the peaks of the Sierra Mountains, this gorgeous shawl shifts colors and lace patterns as you move from section to section. It may look like a lot of lace, but the patterns repeat and build on each other, so you start simple and gradually get more complex.

    Our favorite kind of sweater is the kind you never want to take off. That's why the Tealeaf is a must make — the shape is easy to wear, but the details make it special. Think lace, pockets, shoulder saddles, and more.

    We get it: Nobody really wants to make a gauge swatch. You want to jump right into the fun stuff! And while we’re all for spontaneity, sometimes it’s best to proceed with caution. If you don’t check your gauge you might end up with sweaters that are too large, bags that are too tiny, and gloves that pinch and squeeze. (Just don’t ask how we know.)

    The bigger the needle, the better, right? Not so fast! Every needle size (and type) has its purpose. And not only that, once you narrow down the size, there's the material and type to consider, too. With so many choices, it can be really hard to decode which needles to use for each project. Consider this your cheat sheet!
