Learning new skills

Each Yarnomat pattern lists the skills required to knit it. If you do not currently have all the required skills:

  • ask a knitting friend for help
  • look up the required skills and techniques in any good learn-to-knit book (try your local library), or
  • search the web for tutorial pages and videos.
