The ever popular KnittingHelp.com knitting videos are now available for the iPhone. Includes 170 knitting videos from the website have been organized and added to this knitting video reference app. The videos are stored within the app and not streamed, so there is no need for an Internet connection to watch them.

You will have at your fingertips access to numerous cast-on methods, bind-offs, increases and decreases, stitch patterns and a whole lot more. If you want to know if a particular subject is covered, I'd recommend going to http://www.knittinghelp.com.

This app does not include the premium videos from the website or the the 45 minute "How to Knit: A Complete Introduction." beginner series. But all the other free videos from the website are included in this app for quick access.
Also Amy Finlay has included an introduction section to help new knitters get up to speed. The introduction covers topics such as choosing a first project, selecting yarn and needles, casting on, knit and purl stitches, gauge, and more.
NOTE: Just like on the website, some of the smaller videos do not have sound and are meant to be followed visually. These are typically simpler videos such as increases and decreases and are very easy to discern by watching.

Best knitting app on the market
Updated for ios11: Great functional and aesthetic update. Makes my favorite knitting app even better.
This is THE knitting app. I learned to knit using knittinghelp's videos and this app has been a godsend. Whatever the stitch, this app has a video for it. Would recommend to any knitter, new or old.
The best. Every knitter new and old needs this app!
Updated! Fabulous knitting help! Don't knit without it!
Update-I was getting warning notices that this app had not been updated in some time and would not be compatible with iOS 11. I am delighted to see that they did do an update and it is just as useful as it was in the past and I am very please that I will be able to continue to refer to it. My review stands.
I recently resumed knitting after a nearly 30 break. Back when I knitted for my baby daughter and now I'm knitting for her baby daughter. So some of my skills are a bit rusty and having this app to refresh them, and to learn a few new ones as patterns may call for. The information is presented clearly and is easy to follow and understand. I love it!
