One of the most famous and best loved knitting shops in London, I Knit London is a shop, club, and sanctuary rolled into one.

The shop opened in 2008 when owner Gerard Allt decided to turn his hobby of knitting into a full-time career.

Things took off incredibly quickly, with evening knitting groups immediately growing in popularity and Gerard’s expertise becoming so sought after he was invited to set up a knitting zone for an after party at the Brit Awards in 2010.

Today the shop stocks all of the essential knitting equipment and literature even the most obsessed knitter could require.

Alcoholic drinks are served to people who pop in for a knit and natter and classes are also run to enable absolute beginners to give the past-time a go in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere.


Our little known fact about I Knit London:
Gerard is amazed more single men do not come along to the knitting workshops, as he says they are an ideal place for meeting unattached women.
