Celebrate Worldwide Knit in Public Day on June 13 by getting out your knitting needles and knitting in a public place. The idea is to bring back the craft of knitting and make it a norm to knit in public, kind of like reading a book in public.
Knitting is a craft that has been around for centuries. It is typically done with woolen yarn, and can be used to create a variety of items, from sweaters to scarves to blankets.
Learning to Knit
There are a few basic stitches that are used in knitting, and once you know these, you can create just about anything. The most common stitches are the knit stitch and the purl stitch. The knit stitch is simply done by inserting the needle into the next stitch on the left needle, and then wrapping the yarn around the right needle before pulling it through the stitch. The purl stitch is done by inserting the needle into the next stitch on the right needle, and then wrapping the yarn around the left needle before pulling it through the stitch.
Once you know these basic stitches, you can start to create more complicated patterns and designs. There are endless possibilities when it comes to knitting, and it is a great hobby for people of all ages. Whether you are looking to make a simple scarf or a complicated sweater, knitting is a fun and rewarding activity.
