The pleasure of knitting
If more and more people like to knit, it is because knitting is an activity that is far from recent, it has existed for a very long time and has conquered all generations.
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, is thought to have originated in the Near East. The oldest evidence dates from the 3rd century AD. Knitting samples have been found in Syria and Egypt. Since then, the practice of knitting has developed widely. It was imported into France by the Arabs in the Middle Ages.
Knitting to make clothes
For a long time, knitting was the preserve of men, who made clothes for the whole family or on commission. Then, women started knitting and gradually replaced men in this activity, including in knitwear workshops or, later, the knitting industry. Making knitwear then became a predominantly female activity.
Today, knitting is still a widespread activity, attracting new enthusiasts every day.
