Welcome

A-MAJOR-KNITWORK is a major yarn shop for all your knitting and crocheting needs.  The shop sells the latest high-fashion yarns alongside high-quality basic yarns, and offers a large selection of needles, accessories, books, leaflets, and buttons.  The owners offer custom charting services and technical help. 
WIFI is available.  Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and join our Ravelry Group.

The shop is a perfect spot in the heart of the San Fernando Valley where a skein of yarn becomes a-major-knit wearable, snuggable, or giftable.

We are grateful that you continue to support our local yarn shop. We don't just sell materials. We're also here with instruction, technical support, and friendship. Studies have shown that knitting and crocheting are good for your mental health, so we provide excellent therapy too!

We're located near Lake Balboa Birmingham High School on the SE corner of Balboa and Vanowen in a strip shopping center behind the Jack-in-the-Box. There is plenty of parking and easy freeway access to both the Ventura (101) and San Diego (405) freeways.

Learn to Knit Socks

From Beginner to Advanced with Mindy

Hermione's Socks


Let's all start with a basic sock.

This will be an ongoing series of classes.
Thursdays: 1PM - 3PM or 4:30PM - 6:30PM

Cost: $35.00 for 2 hours of instructions
The 2 hours can be divided over up to 3 weeks because we know that some people are slower knitters. Consider using a bulkier yarn to learn.
(yarn must be purchased at the shop)

Now it's time to challenge yourself with classes tailored to the sock pattern you want to make. Try something new! Here's a short list of techniques to learn:
Stretchy Cast On and Bind Off
Different Heels, Knitting Two-at-a-Time
How to Measure Your Foot
Magic Loop, Two Circular Needles, Working with the new FlexiFlips
Toe-Up Socks

Cost: $35.00 for 2 hours of instruction
(yarn must be purchased at the shop)
