GREAT GIFT IDEA!

The knitting board is a centuries old hand knitting tool that creates beautiful, double knit.  Make cozy, warm scarves quickly and easily.  A simple weave and hook process makes knitting fun and easy.  For more knitting board products, visit Alice in Stitches.

The knitting boards are made of solid kiln dried hardwood by master craftsmen, and sanded to a smooth finish.  The knitting needles are steel pins with small ball tips, spaced 3/8″ apart, and steel hardware securing the boards.  Create many different looks with one board using fine and bulky yarns. 

The knitting board has adjustable wood spacers with (3) settings of 1/2″, 1″ and 1 1/4″.  This allows the knitter to change the spacing between the boards and create different effects.  You can use any weight of yarn from lacy fingering yarns to thick wools and blends.  The unique recessed surface ensures easy knitting.

The process of knitting on knitting boards originated in the 1500s in the mountain villages of Europe.  The technique was passed down through the families, generation to generation.  However, when the knitting machine was introduced, knitting boards all but disappeared.  Now today, Kim and Pat, a mother/daughter team from the Knitting Board Co., have brought this technique back to a new generation of knitters.
