The Design

“You'll be knitting in no time!”

Teach a friend, brush up on your skills, or learn on your own. This complete, easy-to-follow instructional tool shows you how.

The Learn-To-Knit Companion is a 16-page booklet that uses more than 120 instructional photos that will turn you into an accomplished knitter. Just follow the steps! With The Companion by your side, you can even begin one of the First Projects patterns in the Churchmouse Classroom collection.


  • Choosing and preparing your yarn
  • Two ways to cast on
  • The knit stitch and purl stitch for both  'pickers' and 'throwers'
  • Changing from knit to purl within the same row
  • Getting a dropped stitch back on the needle
  • Binding off
  • Blocking
  • Weaving in tails

To get started, grab The Companion and choose a shade of Manos del Uruguay Maxima, a super-soft, hand-dyed fine merino wool yarn that's easy to knit. You'll also need a US 8 (5 mm) circular needle. (Use our needle finder! We recommend bamboo for beginners.) You're on your way!
