LEARN TO KNIT!
Here is a step by step tutorial for learning the skills for making the "Come Together Blanket."
There are many different knitting styles. If you learn from a friend or relative or other teacher, she may have a different way of looping her yarn or holding her needles. This is a series produced in The Little Knittery with Kat Coyle by Hayley Helmreich. We hope this helps get you started and answers some questions along the way!
