Ever knit a list and forget to add something? Or knit the wrong size? Well, you’re not alone. We’ve all been there. That’s why we at Knitlist want to help you create the perfect knit list that will guide your way through knitting success! In this blog post, we’ll be sharing 15 steps from our founder on how she creates successfully knit lists for her customers so they can have more time to enjoy their hobby of knitting.

Step one: knit list maker

Find a large paper or whiteboard to write your knit list on. This should be the first thing you do, so it can guide your decision-making process.

Write down all of the items that need to go in your knit list and then categorize them by type – e.g. knitwear, accessories.

Next to each item, write down the quantities of that particular type – e.g. how many knit sweaters should you knit? How many pairs of socks do you need?

Then for each item on your list, draw a line connecting it with another category (e.g., knitwear and knit accessories).

After doing this, it is important to estimate how much money you should allocate for that knit list.

Step two: knit sweaters and knitwear

Next up on the knit list maker are knit sweaters and knitwear! This category includes items like skirts and dresses too (e.g., in case you knit knitwear that you want to wear).

Write down all of the items, then the quantities.

Step three: knit accessories

This category includes any knit items that are not knitted for clothing purposes – e.g., knit gloves or a scarf (e.g., in case you knit cotton yarn and would like a knit accessory to knit).

Write down all of the items, then the quantities.

Step four: knit supplies and knit tools

This category includes any knitting tools or other knit related products – e.g., yarn (e.g., in case you knit wool and would like a new ball of yarn), needles, stitch markers, etc.

Write down all of the items, then the quantities.

Step five: knit patterns

This category includes any knitting pattern that you knit and want to share with others – e.g., a knit scarf or hat (e.g., in case you knit yarn). If something is not finished yet, but you knit it, you can knit list the pattern as well.

Write down all of the patterns that are knit (including unfinished ones), then write a brief description and include an image if possible.

Step six: knit gifts

This category includes any knitted items that people would like to give other people – e.g., knit gloves, knit mittens (e.g., in case you knit wool), knit scarves or knit hats

Write down all of the items that are knit and listed as gifts, then write a brief description about each item.

Step seven: knitting supplies

This category includes any type of item such as yarn, needles, stitch markers, etc.

Write down all of the knit supplies that are knit on this list, then write a brief description about each item and include an image if possible.

Step eight: knit tools

This category includes any type of tool or equipment used to knit – e.g., knitting needles, yarn swift (e.g., in case you knit wool), etc.

Step nine: pattern books

This category includes any kind of book with knitting patterns – e.g., stitch dictionaries, types of needles (e.g., knit needles), etc.

Write down all of the pattern books that are knit on this list, then write a brief description about each book and include an image if possible.

Step ten: knitting patterns

This category includes any type of design for knit garments – e.g., baby sweater (e.g., knit with a bulky weight yarn), etc.

Step eleven: knitwear

This category includes knit garments – e.g., baby sweater, cardigan (e.g., knit with a bulky weight yarn), etc.

Step twelve: knit accessories

This category includes knitting items that are not for wear on the body but can be used to accessorize an outfit or style your hair – e.g., knit scarf, knit beanie, knit headband (e.g., knit with a bulky weight yarn), etc.

Step thirteen: knitting in the round

This category includes any type of project that is knit around and then closed – e.g., hat (knit on circular needles)

Step fourteen: knit stitches

This category includes knit projects that are knit flat – e.g., sweater (knit on straight needles)

Step fifteen: knit for kids

This category includes any type of project designed specifically for children to make, wear or play with – e.g., baby hat, toddler toy, etc.
