Classification of difficulties
Here at easy as knit, you will find patterns with different difficulties. However, all of the patterns are thoroughly explained and will guide you through the knitting process with a little extra help. The patterns contain video guides with tips and explanations of all of the techniques and knitting terms used in the pattern. This is included because the esy as knit team strives to make knitting accessible to everyone - and to create a universe of learning for both the beginner as well as the intermediate knitter. If you are new to the world of knitting and you are about to start making your first knitted piece, we recommend starting with a pattern with difficulty 1. On the contrary, if you are an intermediate knitter and you are looking to learn new techniques such as for example mock cables, then you should choose a pattern with a higher difficulty.
1 – Ultra Easy

This category always contains step-by-step video guides where we will be making the exact same design in the videos as you are making yourself. These step-by-step guides are especially great when you are trying to learn how to knit. The patterns that are marked difficulty 1 are very detailed and do not contain any difficult techniques. The patterns contain a material list that lets you know exactly what you should purchase. They also contain explanation boxes that explain every technique and term used in the pattern. There are also no abbreviations of knitting terms in the patterns.
2 – Easy
The patterns in this category are a bit more difficult than the ones in ”Ultra Easy”, however, they are still very beginner friendly. It is possible to make a pattern from difficulty 2 as your first project, but you will need to be a bit more patient. All techniques used in this category are accompanied by video guides. The patterns contain normal techniques such as purl stitches, increases and decreases but they do not contain techniques such as German short rows.
