Learning to knit
« on: February 17, 2014, 03:24:27 PM »
Many years ago I knew how to knit but I no longer am able.  Do any of you knitters have a suggestion for a site/video where I may refresh my skills?  My goal is to be able to make a cotton dishcloth.  I was given two of them for Christmas and I absolutely love them.

Thank you for any help or suggestions you have.

Youtube....seriously.  It's how I learned back in 2008.  Books went right over my head.

I like this channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/knittinghelp?feature=watch

This one is also good: http://www.youtube.com/user/theknitwitch/videos

I've also liked this one for various advanced stitches: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrRT4LwemxYrZxj-HeCkK9Q
