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.
This is a fairly large app due to the inclusion of all the video files. You will need about 600MB of space available on your iPhone or iPod Touch to install this application.

No knitting 'bag' is complete without this!
This app has been a Godsend! It has helped me refresh my advanced skills as i seem to have forgotten more about knitting then i thought possible!
It has helped me teach newbies to the craft without PHYSICALLY being there! It is such a great reference! The videos are such high quality & close shot that they show the minute details and intricacy of the stitches. The audio & suggestions are also much relied on, as i have learned even more from the tips given during the videos then from all of the experienced knitters in my knitting club.
The helpful stitch abbreviations are invaluable! I can read how the stitches work as well as SEE them! This app is well thought out since i can use it without having to be online, which makes this app THE BEST, well executed, highly organized knitting tool around! Thank you!
P.S. can you do one for crochet too! :)
Over the top
Consider yourself, as I was, floating in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea on a gorgeous cruise ship, sitting on your veranda knitting a tiny pair of socks that were the only thing that fit in your carry on bag. Ooops. You've just totally forgotten how to do a SSK, and you try a few failed attempts and know you're ruining those beautiful socks.
But you're screwed, because internet is a buck fifty a minute at sea, and voila, you remember Knitting Help is loaded on your phone!!! Problem solved!!
I've been knitting in National Parks with no access and repeatedly can go back and watch the already downloaded videos 12x til my feeble brain gets it!!
Love this app!!! Would pay 4 times its price for it!
WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!
This app is 100% worth every penny you pay! I'm a continental knitter of 7 years and any time I run into a new stitch I go straight here! Being that I carry my yarn in my left hand I often meet people that can't help me since they are English knitters (carry their yarn in their right hand). This app makes a world of difference in those situations since videos for both English and Continental styles are offered. I'm also a very hands on learner so I need to see AND do things to learn them. The videos are clear and I can rewind them as much as I need. You need this app! Trust me!
