Knitting and crocheting is a method in which yarn is manipulated to create a textile or fabric and used to make many types of garments and keepsakes. The earliest known examples of knitting dates back to the Egyptian era and the skill is still going strong in the 21st century.

There are many benefits to knitting, other than the finished product of course. It is known to have the same benefits as meditation. It helps with concentration, co-ordination, reduces depression and anxiety. You may have seen Plymouth's Tom Daly using knitting to relax during the 2021 Olympics!
