The ultimate knitting pocket reference guide. Need to remember how to do a certain decrease? Forgot how to do the Kitchener stitch or need a refresher on crossing? We've got you covered!

The ever popular knitting videos are now available for the iPhone. Includes 170 knitting videos from the website have been organized and added to this knitting video reference app. The videos are stored within the app and not streamed, so there is no need for an Internet connection to watch them. This means you can access the videos instantly from anywhere. On an airplane? Not a problem. You will have at your fingertips access to numerous cast-on methods, bind-offs, increases and decreases, stitch patterns and a whole lot more. If you want to know if a particular subject is covered, I'd recommend going to

Over 170 Knitting Videos in 15 Categories::

This app does not include the premium videos from the website or the the 45 minute "How to Knit: A Complete Introduction." beginner series. But all the other free videos from the website are included in this app for quick access.

Also Amy Finlay has included an introduction section to help new knitters get up to speed. The introduction covers topics such as choosing a first project, selecting yarn and needles, casting on, knit and purl stitches, gauge, and more.

NOTE: Just like on the website, some of the smaller videos do not have sound and are meant to be followed visually. These are typically simpler videos such as increases and decreases and are very easy to discern by watching.

No knitting 'bag' is complete without this!

This app has been a Godsend! It has helped me refresh my advanced skills as i seem to have forgotten more about knitting then i thought possible!
It has helped me teach newbies to the craft without PHYSICALLY being there! It is such a great reference! The videos are such high quality & close shot that they show the minute details and intricacy of the stitches. The audio & suggestions are also much relied on, as i have learned even more from the tips given during the videos then from all of the experienced knitters in my knitting club.
The helpful stitch abbreviations are invaluable! I can read how the stitches work as well as SEE them! This app is well thought out since i can use it without having to be online, which makes this app THE BEST, well executed, highly organized knitting tool around! Thank you!
P.S. can you do one for crochet too! :)

Updated! Fabulous knitting help! Don't knit without it!

Update-I was getting warning notices that this app had not been updated in some time and would not be compatible with iOS 11. I am delighted to see that they did do an update and it is just as useful as it was in the past and I am very please that I will be able to continue to refer to it. My review stands.

I recently resumed knitting after a nearly 30 break. Back when I knitted for my baby daughter and now I'm knitting for her baby daughter. So some of my skills are a bit rusty and having this app to refresh them, and to learn a few new ones as patterns may call for. The information is presented clearly and is easy to follow and understand. I love it!

Over the top

Consider yourself, as I was, floating in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea on a gorgeous cruise ship, sitting on your veranda knitting a tiny pair of socks that were the only thing that fit in your carry on bag. Ooops. You've just totally forgotten how to do a SSK, and you try a few failed attempts and know you're ruining those beautiful socks.
But you're screwed, because internet is a buck fifty a minute at sea, and voila, you remember Knitting Help is loaded on your phone!!! Problem solved!!
I've been knitting in National Parks with no access and repeatedly can go back and watch the already downloaded videos 12x til my feeble brain gets it!!
Love this app!!! Would pay 4 times its price for it!
