Knitting Challenges to Take On

  • Knit something with a new to your fibre that you have been avoiding.
  • Knit a project with a size of needle you don’t usually use.
  • Use new-to-you cast on.
  • Use new-to-you bind off.
  • Knit a project using a different knitting method. (Continental, English, Portuguese).
  • Use a new kind of knitting needle configuration (4 DPNs, 5 DPNs, tiny circulars, extra long circulars, bent DPNs, flexible DPNs).
  • Knit something while watching your favourite show and do a yarn over and decrease every time a specific character talks.
  • Set a timer for 5 minutes and knit as many stitches as you can. Take a break and repeat to determine your fastest knitting speed.
