Welcome to Knitting – A Guide For Beginners

Let us help guide you on your journey learning to knit – whether this is a return after many years, or a new journey, we are delighted to help.

My most commonly asked question for new knitters, is “Where to Start?”
Read my guide here…

Learning anything new will go differently for different people, but it is fair to expect your first piece to grow slowly, have some impromptu holes and gain extra stitches.  This is completely normal for new knitters.  I like the idea that you will only ever have one FIRST ever piece, and that piece will show your knitting journey from cast on to cast off.  You will see your progress in this piece and it will never look like anyone else’s!  Embrace the learning marks, plus holes in your knitting and straggles of wool are very on trend 🙂

And don’t forget to check out the FREE PATTERNS!  Great options for beginners in there.

    Sally, South Australia

    Joann, MA United States

    Janet, Canberra Australia

    Shona, Christchurch NZ
  • Sumptuous by name, sumptuous by nature! There are no words to describe how much I LOVE this yarn!! To anyone unsure, just buy it and fall in love with it xx

    Chloe, Otago NZ
  • I know I can order anytime and will get great service and beautiful wool

    Susie, NSW Australia
  • Beautiful wool with friendly patterns

  • Ordering from The Woven Co was straight forward and easy to do.  Mine was an international order (from Australia) and The Woven kept in touch from the time of order until dispatch, with my yarn arriving approximately a week later.  I can highly recommend ordering from The Woven their yarn is scrumptious and so worth the effort.
