Welcome to The Knitting Loft

Here at The Knitting Loft it's all about supporting the local fiber arts community. We offer a cozy place where knitters and crocheters can visit, shop, learn, and create great projects.

This Fox 5 segment highlights the owner, Cheryl Steplight, talking about why she opened the shop. Plus, it includes a few shots of some of our knitters working on projects here at The Knitting Loft. The segment also features Solitude Wool, a Virginia farm that creates yarn made from wool sourced from small sheep farms in the Chesapeake Bay Region. We carry some of their yarns, and it's great because it allows us to source some of our yarns locally, a more sustainable practice.

We offer classes for everyone from beginners to experienced knitters. We even offer a class where parents can learn with their children.

There's nothing like being a part of a "tight knit" fiber arts community. Stop by our shop and check us out!

Creating Community

The Knitting Loft is in Historic Capitol Hill, D.C.
Located in Historic Capitol Hill, The Knitting Loft was born out of the passion of Cheryl Steplight, a native Washingtonian and knit lover!

Through this fiber arts studio, Cheryl seeks to provide fiber artists with resources for the craft and a cozy place to learn, practice and meet others.

Leaving a Legacy

Leaving a LegacyIt is Cheryl's sincere desire to see the fiber arts expand and thrive. To this end, The Knitting Loft teaches the art of knitting to young people from under-served communities within the Nation's Capital.
