8 best journals for knitters
There’s a lot to keep track of when knitting. I always have to take notes to remember how I have decreased, which needles I used, and such things. And as there’s a bunch of cute knitting themed journals and notebooks available out there, so I guess I’m not the only one 🙂
These are my top picks journals for knitters. The best, funniest, prettiest, and most practical notebooks out there!
(I also have a post about the best crochet journals, if that’s more your thing!)

My Knitting Journal
This bright and colorful knitting journal is perfect if you like to have a journal where you can fill in the blanks. It has some really good features like:
>> Project pages and yarn stash list
>> Graph pages
>> Reference information like abbreviations and wraps per inch on the cover inside
This journal is a 6″ x 8″ / 15,3 x 20,3 cm, paperback with 160 pages.
Knitting notebooks designed by me!
Jay! I have finally found the courage to put up a Redbubble shop to share my designs with you guys!
While I’m a yarn crafter at heart, I also like to dabble a bit in other artsy things like drawing and graphic design.
These are notebooks and don’t come with any templates or other kinds of resources. Instead, it’s a blank canvas for your to fill with notes, sketches, or whatever you like!
The books are spiral bound which allows the pages to lay flat when you leave the notebook open instead of flipping by themselves.
I have made a bunch of different knitting themed designs, feel welcome on over and check them out!

Sparkles knitting journal
A journal with a unicorn knitting a flood of pastel colors on the cover, both my eight-year-old daughter and I love this one!
This journal has lined pages and a few extras to help you out:
>> Guide on how to measure your body
>> A chart over yarn weights and compatible needle sizes
>> Knitting abbreviations
As you can see above, this book is very similar to the “All you knit is love” one, but this one has lined pages instead of graph pages.
Both are 6″ x 8,5″ / 15,3 x 21,6cm, has 104 pages, and are spiralbound with a softcover.
Like to make your own color knitting patterns?
This notebook has a clean cover with a reverse stockinette image on it and 100 pages of graph paper inside. Perfect for knitters who like to draw their own graphs for colorwork!
I usually print graph paper, but I’m a bit lazy when it comes to putting them in my knitting binder. This laziness often results in lost ideas or my graphs getting a redesign by my kiddos… This one definitely makes it to my wishlist this Christmas!

>> Ring-bound notebooks are easy to write in as they lay flat.
>> 144 lined pages 7″ x 10″ / 17,8 x 25,4cm

Remember all the details about your knitting and crochet projects with this easy to fill-in journal.

The spiral binding makes the journal lie flat when you write or read in it, which is nice!
