Tips and Tutorials

First, Habetrot's Wheel does have its own YouTube Channel. You can link to it below or click here. The channel is fairly new, but we are uploading tutorial videos, podcasts about the history, literature, and legends of yarn and fiber, and more every week. Check us out!

If you need assistance with READING YOUR KNITTING, check out these 4 Steps to help you get there.

THIS CHART by Lion is particularly helpful when trying to determine how much yarn you need for your project.

AllFreeKnitting offers this tutorial on how much yarn you need for a project, as well.

Little NutMeg Productions ***BEST TUTORIALS

If you are looking for a tutorial on almost anything knit-wise, I absolutely recommend checking out designer Meghan Jones's Free Tutorial videos. They are AMAZING!

Pattern Suggestions

I have a number of favorite patterns. Here are some of my absolute favorites:

Hooked on Tilly's Cottage Socks are squishy and warm and made with worsted weight yarn.

The shop recently hosted a Virtual Cable KAL, and we used this awesome Celtic Cable Scarf pattern by Rose Hernandez.

Jess Anderson's Bernie's Big Mood Mittens are geared towards more seasoned mitten-makers, but the pattern is really cool. 

Additionally, you can check out suggested patterns (and many are free) through some of our yarn vendors:

Berroco

Cascade

Frabjous Fibers and Wonderland Yarns

Kelbourne Woolens

Kraemer

malabrigo

Plymouth Yarns

Ravelry also offers an extensive pattern library. Some do cost money. Others are free. You can always limit your searches to find what you are looking for. 

Arne and Carlos

In addition to great tutorials and suggestions, Arne and Carlos just bring a smile to my face every single time I watch one of their videos. I highly recommend them.

Detroit Knots

TUNISIAN CROCHET AWESOMENESS! Natalie's channel only has a handful of videos up at the moment, but if you are into Tunisian crochet and want to bump up your skill set, definitely check out her tutorials. Plus, she has some awesome traditional crochet and Tunisian crochet patterns available on Ravelry.  

Crochet Luna

Claudia's Vlogcast is such fun! She offers some great discussions about crafting, crochet, and hosts so many super fun Crochet-A-longs. I'm particularly looking forward to this year's Summer of Romance CAL, which she is co-hosting with Clarisabeth of Crochetcakes.

Julie is an amazing indie dyer, fiber artist, and overall creative mind, and I think you'll enjoy her videos as much as I do.

Crochetcakes

While searching for some fun crochet podcasts and CALs, I came across Crochetcakes. On the channel, Clarisabeth offers various tutorials, project discussions, and tutorials. Super positive and an all-around great podcast.
