The fabric is something that we all know, but surprisingly little is known about when and where the art of hand knitting started. This is because yarn fibers are biodegradable. One thing I do know that the oldest form of knitting (crossed knitting) was practiced since before the birth of Christ. A pair of knitted socks discovered in Egyptian tombs from 3 to 6 centuries AD is the first archaeological evidence of knitted garment. The knitting needle before is a brass rod that goes back to the Iron Age. Woolen yarn began around 4000 BC near the Mediterranean Sea. The first wool factory in England, was built by the Romans in 50 AD The kind of point we are accustomed to was not practiced until very recently, however.

The oldest form of knitting is crossed knitting, also known as the needle pseudo single-point and point. In crossing point, the points are rotated a half turn instead of aligning vertically. This knitting method was highly developed by the Nazca culture Peru (100 BC-700 AD) in the periphery of their woven fabrics. Frequent color changes in these bands were used to create complex human and animal figures.

The origins of knitting are hard to trace, but there are several theories. Some people believe that knitting started in Persia, others that began in Israel, Jordan and Syria. Others believe it began in the mountains of North Africa or even Japan or China. Some people believe that knitting grew out of fish tissue nets by men.

Some socks and other items made with the cross-weaving technique have been found in Egyptian tombs, possibly dating from the 4 or 5 ยบ C. No socks found in Egyptian tombs point (3 and 6 AD, knitted pieces found at the site of Dura-Europas, near the Euphrates River (about AD 200), sandals and socks apparently from Saudi Arabia (circa 350). It is possible however, that these early socks were worked in nalebinding, which is an ancient craft that is often very similar to some extent, and may be confused with true knitting by archaeologists with no training in the history of needlework. A pair of socks patterned cotton from Egypt, dating from AD1100 can be the first example of "true" tissue or can be nalebinding too. Socks and stockings were the first elements that point, because the fabric was ideal for shaping a garment to the foot at a time when fabric and sewing woven were less flexible.

The Encyclopedia Comprehensive Stitchery by Mildred Graves Ryan says that most historians agree that knitting was probably spread by (probably male) Arabian sailors and traders who traveled through the Mediterranean. Many people believe that knitting was invented by Arabian nomads who carried the boat in Egypt probably in the 5th century AD Knitting was then taken across northern Africa and Spain. From Spain, traveling Catholics picked it up and spread rapidly throughout Europe.

It was not until the early 14th century we have the first references to true knitting in Europe. At that point, the point of the setback was unknown what means that to produce friction knitting, people had to knit in the round and then cut open if necessary. The first reference to the point of no reverse was not until the mid 16th century, but knowledge of how it may have preceded that a little.

Although nobody knows exactly where the real began knitting, it seems that knitting was probably spread by Arabian sailors and merchants who traveled throughout the Mediterranean. So obviously, Catholics travel that quickly spread throughout Europe. It is a point, as we know, is a relatively recent art. Crafts similar to some extent, such as cross nalebinding point and yet have a long history, dating from before the birth of Christ. Obviously practiced in many countries and cultures very different from Japan to Argentina to Peru. Knitting clearly fills a need in people making garments that continues and continues to grow.
