YAK - Yarn and Knitting Specialists - Local Brighton

For all you avid knitters and crocheters, there is a new knitting shop in town.  Yarn and Knitting, affectionately known as YAK has recently opened up in Gloucester Road in the heart of Brighton.

I used to knit a lot in my youth, mum was an ace knitter and her crochet amazing.  My commutes to London ten times a week meant I could pop out a garment in no time, I still have those jumpers somewhere!

Yarn and Knitting is set to become the hub of the knitting and crochet community both locally in Brighton and online, they will ship product worldwide too.  There is something for everyone with yarns from British suppliers, mills and hand dyers from across the UK along with accessory products such as patterns and some innovative tools.


Classes ranging from Beginners knitting and crocheting to fashioning socks and hats and more unusual techniques such as Arm Knitting are also held in the Brighton shop taught by experienced tutors.  Knit Night is also held every Thursday from 6pm where you are welcome to bring in your latest project and hang out with other knitters and crafters.

If you are a local knitter or a visitor to the town, do come and visit Yarn and Knitting, the destination for all things knitting and crocheting!

  1. I've tried and failed with knitting, mainly because my 3 year old keeps unpicking rows which took hours! But this beautiful array of wool just makes me want to take it up again. x

  2. I love all the pretty colours. My mum used to sit and knit and crochet every night but I was never as good as her at it. I keep thinking about taking it up again as a hobby :-)
