6 Genius Knitting Hacks You Need To Know About

6 Genius Knitting Hacks You Need To Know About

Forget what you know about knitting… this is how the pros do it! We all need a little insider intel every now and then, which is why we’ve searched high and low for knitting hacks that will make all the difference to your next project. No need to thank us, it’s what we are here for!

Use needles that contrast with your wool
If your make is dark, use a light-coloured pair of needles, and vice versa. This will help you see what you’re doing.

Take wool from the centre of the ball of yarn…
...rather than taking it from the outside. This will keep everything much neater!

A kitchen fork can be your saviour!
If you don’t have a pompom maker, never fear – you’ll be whipping up a mini pompom in no time!

No yarn holder? No problem!
Use a teapot for a quick and easy way to stop your stash getting tangled

New circular needle kinking already?
Just dip the cord in hot water for a few seconds and you’ll be able to straighten it out.

Yarn rolling all over the place?
A cardboard box and a knitting needle can make a great DIY yarn holder.
