The process of knitting, and the actual knitted goods, can be understood to be a form of material culture.
Material culture is the "physical manifestations of culture and therefore embraces those segments of human
learning and behavior which provide a person with plans, methods, and reasons for producing and using things
that can be seen and touched"
It is apparent throughout the history of knitting that it does express aspects of culture, demonstrated through
the use of different patterns and materials in creative ways in meeting the basic human need for clothing.
By examining the knitting of a culture, one can see how the people have adapted and accommodated to their
environment. The fibers and dyes they use, for example, indicate the availability of different plants and animals,
as well as the climate, of the region.
One of the ways that knitting has been conceptualized is as a craft, Howard Becker in his book Art Worlds, defines
craft as "a body of knowledge and skill which can be used to produce useful objects, with the ability to perform in
a useful way". One judges a craft on the basis of its function, the virtuoso skill of the crafter, and the beauty of the
pieces crafted. What makes crafts different from arts is that crafts have a practical function that is not a part of the
understanding of art. Becker contends that both arts and crafts should be looked at as parts of social worlds,
defined as "an established network of co-operative links among participants".
It is through the effort of many people, such as manufacturers, distributors and patrons, that arts and crafts
continue to be made and appreciated over numerous years.
Folk art is when one "grants common objects the status of art".
Examples of such objects are quilts , embroidered samplers, and toys.
he sweaters in the images are designs with a gauge of 21 stitches
x 28 rows and in size 44.

What materials do you need to start knitting?
Knitting is an ancient and rudimentary craft.
As such, the materials that you need to knit are fairly basic; when it comes down to it, all you need to
knit is some needles and some yarn.
You should pay close attention to the type of yarn you use, however, as it will have a significant impact
on how your final product looks and feels. For instance, certain yarns are appropriate for stretchy materials,
while other yarns will produce less stretchy, more solid final results.
The width and thickness of the yarn should be taken into account when selecting knitting needles to use.
Picking out the yarn can be one of the more pleasant steps in making an item, as knitting yarn comes in a
variety of colors and styles and it is always fun to play around with your imagination.
Some are solid colors, others have multiple colors for striping, and others include sparkles and other
