  • I launched the channel in 2014, starting with a series of lessons on crochet basics.
  • When I became a Red Heart Ambassador and then a Yarnspirations Ambassador, my video content really began to soar. I started offering lots of crochet and knitting tutorials, including many for their free patterns. These remain some of my most popular videos to date.
  • I launched the Yarn Thing podcast as an audio podcast. However, it eventually moved to YouTube. That way, you could see the people I was talking to and the yarn, books, and patterns we were discussing.

Marly Bird’s Most Popular Knitting Video Tutorial

Okay, we know that the most popular crochet video is for a beginner crochet blanket. But what about the knitters? What do they love most? What is Marly Bird’s most popular knitting video tutorial? Here it is:

That’s right; it’s my video tutorial for My First Big Comfy Sweater. People have really enjoyed the “My First” and “Absolute Beginner” knit and crochet video tutorials that I’ve done over the years. It’s a great way to get step-by-step visual instruction to complete a pattern for something you’d like to create, even if you’re new to the crafts. In this case, you can start as a beginner knitter and end up with your first sweater!

This sweater pattern uses garter stitch, stockinette stitch, and a rib at the hem. You create two same-shaped (T-shaped) knit panels and stitch them together. Therefore, you don’t need to learn increasing and decreasing, yet, to complete this oversized sweater pattern. It’s an easy design that you’ll be super proud of when it’s done!

My Most Popular Knitting Video By The Numbers

I first published this video on Oct 5, 2016. It’s received almost 450K views since that time. So it’s not as popular as my most popular crochet tutorial, but it’s still gotten lots of love. 10,000 people have hit that thumbs-up button. If you like this video, you can do the same to support me in a simple way! It’s even received over 500 comments.
