One of the nice things about a SpinCraft Knitting
Pattern is that you don't have to go out and buy a new knitting
needle for every project you knit. Our patterns are
written with a special calculation system that makes it possible
to choose from a wide variety of knitting
yarns. Instead of buying a knitting needle to fit the
pattern, you simply use a knitting needle that matches your yarn.
It is easy to knit with a SpinCraft Knitting
Pattern, because our patterns are so fun and clearly written. We
take knitting to a whole new dimension with our Knit-so-it-Fits
A SpinCraft Knitting Pattern will tend to be knit
in one piece. We have a few patterns that are knit in sections and
sewn together later, but those are the exception. Because of this
you will find that a selection of circular knitting needles will
suffice to make the majority of our patterns. We are even
expanding into the new, exciting, field of knitting tubes (such as
socks) using two circular knitting needles. Very fun to do!
Of course, we still have many patterns for
knitting socks, mittens, hats and gloves with double pointed
SpinCraft Patterns focuses on making an
interesting shape with knitting stitches. You can usually add your
own knit stitches in the place of ours, and make your project as
easy or as difficult as you want.
The way it works is quite simple. You take a
measurement from the person who is going to be wearing the piece,
and then you find your gauge (usually by knitting a swatch). Then
you make some easy calculations which tell you how many stitches
to cast on, and where to go from there.

How our Knitting Patterns work
With a SpinCraft Knitting Pattern--you are the designer. These
patterns are written by Connie Delaney specifically to be used with
any type of yarn, and for any size. They are more versatile than a traditional knitting
system is a simple solution for the hand or machine knitter!.
With a SpinCraft Knitting Pattern you are given the designer's
original math problems. It's easy! You knit your own swatch with
your chosen yarn and knitting needles. Then you take your own measurements (which is why
it can fit any size, no matter how big, no matter how small) and
plug your answers into the calculation tables.
It will look something like this:
G = gauge from your swatch (example 6 sts/in)
A = Measure your hips (example 40")
B = G x A (example 40x6=240)
Cast on B sts. (That means cast on 240 sts)
You can easily see that casting 240 sts onto your
needles with your favorite knitting
yarn, will give you a piece
of knitting that fits exactly around your hips. And that's how it
You will notice, as you go through our catalog, that
the main picture for each pattern is a simple line drawing.
This is because we want to stimulate your imagination
into thinking up the colors and textures for your knitting
treasure -- after all -- with a SpinCraft knitting pattern,
You are the designer!
