ABOUT US

The UK Hand Knitting Association, (UKHKA), formerly The British Hand Knitting Confederation, was formed in 1991 when the Hand Knitting Association (HKA) merged with the British Hand Knitting Association (BHKA). The UKHKA's main aim was and is now to raise the profile of hand knitting. It did this through 'Learn to Knit' classes held throughout the UK, 'Relax and Knit' stands at all the main Knitting and Sewing shows and by the introduction of National Competitions showcased at the Knitting and Sewing shows.

We are now at a stage where 'knitting' is the new 'buzz' word, knitting groups are mushrooming all over the country, knitting shops are opening back on the High Streets and on the Internet and exciting new yarns are being introduced by the season. None of this would have been possible without you, our knitters.
