Quick Links


Not everyone who wants to knit has a friend or a relation who can take the time to teach them. So if that is you, what can you do?

Teach yourself using a good knitting book or a knitting DVD from my Amazon Picks page!

While I personally prefer books, if you are a visual learner a good DVD can be just what you need to get you started on your knitting and to help you manage any problems you encounter.

Pictures of particular techniques in books can be helpful but moving pictures have the advantage of showing you the 'how' to bits from start to finish, not only what to do but how someone else actually does it!

Amazon Picks for Knitting Books on Kindle

If you have a Kindle and prefer to buy your books this way rather than buying a paper book and waiting for it to arrive, check out some of the Kindle versions of the knitting books on Amazon.com.

The big advantage the Kindle has over more traditional books  is that you can carry hundreds of books in the same space taken up by a single paperback book! 

Knitting Supplies on Amazon

There are quite a few items on Amazon for tools and supplies for knitting and crochet projects, but not all of them can be shipped to all locations.  So my advice would be to check out the listings and see if anything you particularly want will ship to you.  

If not, try Etsy.com instead.

Are you a visual learner?

It is possible that you learn better (easier) if you can actually see someone doing whatever it is that you want to learn.  If this is you, a book might not be the best option for you, at least not on its own.  

You can search Amazon for instructional DVDs about knitting for beginners, but you are not likely to find that many.

My suggestion would be that you try searching for videos on Youtube.  Years ago (when I started this site) there were not very many videos on knitting or knitting related topics but these days you will find hundreds of them.

The video below is just one example of what you can find online these days.


Not interactive (which makes it easier if you have questions) but if you are stuck and don't know where to start, this type of video can be helpful.
