The pleasure of knitting
All you need to do is form stitches with two needles or a hook to knit. Knitting is simply making loops with yarn and tying them together to form a fabric. This technique, more recent than weaving, would be born in the Near East. The oldest testimonies date from the 3rd century AD. Knitting samples have been found in Syria and Egypt.

Knitting : comfort guaranteed
Knitting is a special fabric, whose properties are very different from those of weaving. Indeed, knitwear is a stretchy and flexible material that can easily take a shape and then return to its original size. It is appreciated for the comfort it offers. For example, a knitted sweater is much more flexible than a shirt. Similarly, knitted mittens adapt better to all hand movements than a pair of gloves made of fabric or even leather. This is also the case for baby and child knits. Regardless of the age of the child, knitwear offers great freedom of movement.
Fashion wants soft garments that do not restrict the body's movements and can easily adapt to all lifestyles. Knitwear's natural elasticity ensures this comfort. That's why knitwear is so fashionable and in line with current clothing trends.
