How fast do you knit
I have been blogging about technique and speed on
and decided to do some data collection on the knitting speed of the “average” knitter. Our first challenge was in August 2018 but I have refreshed the survey so other knitters can contribute. Every time we hit 50 new responses I will do a random prize draw and to minimise the impact on your privacy I’m using Ravelry user name as a contact point - if you dont use Ravelry an email or other social media account like Instagram is fine.
If you would like to be in random draws in the future please let us know your Ravelry user name so we can contact you.
How many stitches can you knit in one minute?
To test yourself find (or cast on) a project with around 80-100 stitches you can knit “straight” (no pattern, decreases etc) Place a marker and either start a 1 minute timer on your phone or have someone time you for a minute. Knit until the timer goes off. Count your stitches back to the marker, Ideally do the best of three. How many stitches was it?
