This Knitting / Crochet Community is dedicated to knitters, crocheters, weavers and crafters based in the UAE at one time or another. Our Knit / Crochet group holds regular meet-ups so we can get to know each other and spend time chatting and crafting.
The Knit / Crochet Community here on ExpatConnect works in collaboration with the Knitting Amiras, a knitting circle and Knit / Crochet Community that have been here in the UAE for a long time. Our Knitting Group is made up of a friendly group of crafters who are happy to teach you how to knit, refresh your memory, or help you if you get stuck.
The Knit / Crochet Community has meetings in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi, which will be announced as they come. Meet-ups are generally long and full of a lot of chatter, cake eating, coffee drinking, and knitting. We also know all the best places and best ways to buy yarn, needles, and tools in the UAE.
So if you’re looking for a Knit / Crochet group or a knitting circle, look no further! Although it may be hot here in the sandpit, there are lots of fun projects you can work on and it’s no reason to abandon one of your hobbies. Knitted socks are a very practical project for Dubai’s winters. By knitting with lace and skinnier yarns, you can produce beautiful cardigans or shawls that are perfect for the UAE’s nights, or at least the air conditioning!
Considering that most of the Amiras are expats as well, once you become a Knitting Amira, you will always be an Amira, no matter where you reside in the world. We hope to see you at our next Knit / Crochet meet-up. So make sure to sign up and join our Knit / Crochet Community today. ☺
