From friendly chats with crafters talking about their work in progress to close up explanations of tricky techniques and reviews of the latest knitting and crochet materials, YouTube is a goldmine for knitting and craft videos. We’ve rounded up some of our fave go-to channels when we’re looking for knitting inspiration online.
Don’t be fooled by the name- this channel is not all about socks! If you’ve ever wanted to try double knitting, Sockmatician Nathan has some of the clearest explanations we’ve seen to demonstrate all aspects of this versatile double-sided technique. He also has a regular podcast slot to talk about events, materials and Q&As.
