About Us

Knitting 321 was established in the Spring of 2003. Owner, Valeria Kardos' expertise in garment design, crochet and knitting techniques places them on the cutting edge of yarn shops. Their friendly, helpful advice puts customers and students at ease. Valeria’s international fashion design experience enables them to service clients with custom made designs made to measurement patterns from European couture and designer markets. This yarn shop carries the “best of the best” yarns, in a variety of gauges dyed to their specification and beautiful colorations.

The store has become a gathering place for celebrities and interesting women who are focused on creative knitting and crocheting. The warm, friendly atmosphere is a unique haven in hectic New York City. 

Zagat’s says
...this “friendly” Upper East Side Knittery feels like a “secret discovery;” the “helpful owners” offer “hand-holding”, making it worth a stop “for novices”, plus now they also conduct crochet classes.
