The Knit1 crew is passionate about knitting and igniting the inner artist through encouragement, support and advise. We offer a wide selection of yarns, from the economical to the extraordinary, and a large inventory of patterns, pins, buttons, baskets, books and bags .
Classes are designed for every knitting level – from just getting started to advanced techniques.
We also proudly carry the exquisitely crafted work of local artisans – including knitwear, bags made exclusively for Knit1 (and not just for the knitter), and buttons.
Our Shop is an oasis for knitters, crocheters and fiber enthusiasts.
If you cannot visit us, we ship orders of $100 of more FREE – orders of less value shipped for $5.50 and out-of-state ships tax free!
Our staff is here to encourage, support and advise customers from project inception to its last stitch.

Patsy Engelhard found her inner artist when her sister put a pair of knitting needles in her hands and said "I bet you will love this". She moved here and found no shop near enough to feed her new-found passion. Knit1 is her personal haven and sharing it with others makes her very happy.
Lynn Wells learned to knit one January and made all of her Christmas gifts the following December. Lynn believes that any kind of repetitive motion -- whether footfalls or knit and purl -- calms the spirit. Lynn is comfortable knitting outside the box. She is fearless and does not believe in knitting rules.
Marty Dunbar joined Patsy in the Shop from the day it opened. That is also when she learned to knit! In the winter, her husband never leaves the house without the alpaca scarf she made for him! Marty loves to help customers, work the cash register and keep Knit1 looking shipshape.
Kathy Berkshire creates work of knit art that looks like she has been knitting all of her life That may be because she has - since she was 12. She is a gifted knitter and a gifted teacher. Despite her gift, she recognizes the importance of continuing to learn and keeps her skills current. So she attends classes at Stitches, TNNA and other workshops. She loves to share her knowledge with others - lucky for us!
Courtney Zapata is our "new, young blood". She, too, learned to knit at Knit1 - from wonderful Mary Lou - and has never looked back. She made a short detour to Saint Louis but missed us as much as we missed her. We are so glad to have her back.
