Knitting Organizations


Ravelry is a place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, and dyers to keep track of their yarn, tools and pattern information, and look to others for ideas and inspiration. The content is all user-driven; the community makes the site what it is.

You must be a member to sign in, but that's as easy as applying for an account.

Planet Purl

A community for knitters that combines yarn and travel. This site contains shop reviews and a knitter's travel dictionary, but also has plenty even if you never leave home. There are knitalongs, links to patterns, and a stash swap.

Wiki Knitting

WikiKnitting is a wiki devoted to knitting. It's available to help both new and experienced knitters overcome any challenges they may run into. It is also the home of a number of user submitted free patterns. Unlike many knitting help and pattern sites, all of the information on WikiKnitting is contributed and maintained by knitters like you.

The Knitting Guild Association

The Knitting Guild Association (TKGA) is a non-profit organization dedicated solely to knitting and knitters. Since 1984 The Knitting Guild Association has brought knitters together to connect, create and grow.

The Knitting Guild Association is about growing. We’re into contemporary and classics, fads and fun, pretty and practical. You can depend on us to help build your knitting confidence and expand your stitching repertoire.

The National NeedleArts Association

TNNA, an international trade association for the needlearts industry, has created this web site to help you find your favorite supplies and materials at local retail shops, locate needleart events near you, learn more about the needlearts, and acquire a better understanding of the needlearts industry.

The Craft Yarn Council of America

The Craft Yarn Council of America (CYCA) is the yarn industry's trade association. CYCA sponsors the Certified Instructors Program, a knit and crochet teacher-training program and supports Warm Up America and Caps for Kids, community-based charity projects. In addition, the Council sponsors free Knit-Out & Crochet events, which keeps us in touch with thousands of knitters and crocheters around the country.
