Okay, so you want to know knitting abbreviations. Fair enough. I’ll be the first to admit this might not be the most exciting post, but it can be really help. As you already know, I started learning about knitting and now it’s time for me to start sharing it with you! I’m so excited because you probably crochet, and I love it when you overcome a challenge. You know it’s a thing in the crochet community that knitting can be very difficult to learn after learning crochet. I do have to say, it’s probably that, that keeps so many people learning knitting. Your mindset can affect it so much weather you will be able to do it or not, so keep an open mindset when it comes to knitting and you should be just fine! 🙂
BTW did you know that my fave place is Insta, @AshleyDylanLife!
These knitting abbreviations are the ones that I currently know. If you crochet, you may notice some you already know. Other than that, I will work on adding more as I use them. I hope you find this helpful!
