Our Philosophy

At Knitting Heretic, we firmly believe that there is no wrong way to knit. We encourage knitters to break free from traditional norms and embrace their own unique style.

Your Potential

We want you to know that you are not knitting wrong. In fact, you have the ability to knit better than you can imagine. Knitting is an art form that allows for limitless creativity and self-expression. We are here to support you in unlocking your full knitting potential and expanding your skills.

Overcoming Mental Barriers

Sometimes, the only obstacle standing in the way of achieving your knitting goals is your own mindset. We encourage you to break free from restrictive thinking and become a heretic in the world of knitting. By embracing the freedom of the knitting nonconformist, you can unleash your inner knitting heathen and create stunning knitted fabrics.
