Knit 1 was founded in 2004 and Lynn bought it in 2009. Last year Allyson became an owner, so we continue to evolve!

The people and the community that gathers here. It is enormously gratifying to see people's skills grow and transform. We are endlessly inspired by our customers and everyone who teaches and works here.
