When You Participate in a Step-by-Step Knitalong, Learning is Stress-Free and Fun

Even with access to video lessons, there’s no guarantee you’re going to watch all the videos or motivate yourself to overcome challenges during a project.

A knitalong helps you keep pace so that you don’t stress out about getting it all done at once nor do you give up due to lack of progress.
Knitting on your own can be lonely! It means you don’t have someone with whom to share your successes or ask questions.

Group knitalongs with a great community like KnitFreedom help you feel included and motivated as you see others posting their photos and questions, as you ask your own.
Most knitalongs go too fast. Many students can only knit a limited amount per day, so we set a slower weekly pace that lets you enjoy what you’re learning.

Fast knitters aren’t held back, as all our video lessons are available up-front and you can still ask questions as you race ahead towards your first finished pair of socks.

Thanks so much for hosting this KAL (knitalong) with your excellent pattern, precise steps, and prompt and thorough replies to all questions.

Most importantly, I’m so very grateful for your confidence in me and everyone. It makes it possible to take on challenges I would otherwise not attempt solo. This was a growth experience for me on all levels.
