The Try Guys Try Knitting



it's Oh wonder spell I'm under because of the chill in the air just maybe fuck we're knitting I have never knitted it's something you do while watching TV you feel like you didn't waste all that time watching TV I think about knitting I think about like a cozy fireplace hot cup of tea be an old rocking chair ah do I do can I get a rocking chair for this I would consider myself an artsy person so I'm actually kind of pumped for this video also knitting needles look like giant chopsticks and I'm great using chopsticks I used to as a kid do cross stitch with my mom I do remember how at the end it was rewarding look I'm always looking for new hobbies I'll take some long needles and whip together some thread pasta and see what I come up with as an adult I can't possibly fathom this being enjoyable and people say this is a nice hobby I already have hobbies y'all I have a goddamn baby hey baby I'll walk good thanks babysit Park take the baby to the movies last movie I saw was the last Jedi we're gonna learn to knit over the course of 24 hours at the end we're going to be giving each other gifts in the first ever try guys Secret Santa ooh Who am I gonna get hi I'm Frankie Santos I am a knitting expert and also a prop maker how does one knit the way I like to explain knitting it's putting a loop through a loop I think people enjoy it because it's very meditative there is a mug that I kind of want that says I knit because stabbing people is frowned upon I probably should not say that I can't I want them know I love this became way more exciting even though I hate Christmas I do love giving gifts I'm fucking good at it I'm an okay gift giver I'm excited to knit something and then present it to my friend because then they'll have to wear it that's the rule of the gift if you make somebody clothes they have to wear it once Nancy got it for you Aunt Nancy bought it you're gonna wear it to Thanksgiving dinner so this shot the little knitter e is the originator of the pussy hat as which became the great symbol of resistance at the beginning of 2017 that's amazing that's awesome who do you thinks gonna knit the best thinking that Keefe is actually gonna be the best mentor you guys ready to grab some needles and learn how to knit okay so the way you're gonna start is you're gonna have this is called the work the little bit of knitting that you have you're gonna put that in your left hand work on that and you're gonna insert it which loop there's some very fresh popular what do you mean the first thing right here you're going in the back side we're going in the back side I don't want go in the back side you said it's putting a loop inside of a loop correct how does that make a sweater we were doing it repeatedly they got the idea oh wait I want it I want to I don't know I just sneak over here yeah all right and then you guys have made a cable I'll never be on cable we're gonna have it peek through why mine is all right and through the front door around the back in through the front door around the back peek through the window and off jumps jack in through the front door around around the kitchen back to the back door and off comes Jack are there different types of knitting there are many different types of knitting many different methods I'm going to teach you how to knit today it's called the English method the method that I often use is called continental well since you guys are going to learn to knit stitch you're gonna learn the purl stitch which is just the same thing but the opposite so when do you decide to switch between a knit stitch and a purl stitch it's just to get whatever look that you want okay you would do one row of knit and then one row of purl so if we do that for our actual gift we'll be a little more advanced than people who don't potentially I really really don't want to get Eugene because he's gonna be harsh in his criticism I dunno whoever draws me is gonna have a really tough time thinking up something good not a scarf though fucker better not make me a scarf I'm hoping to knit a scarf obviously it's the the simplest thing if you gave a gift that you personally knit it isn't everyone alike Frankie's here or see this is where I get to tell you about the sweater curse what's the sweater curse okay I didn't know it's gonna get spooky yeah this sweater curse is if you are a knitter and you have a partner to whom you are not married if you make them a sweater and you give it to them you're gonna break up know what but when you're married it's okay when you're married it's totally fine because then they're yours so what you're telling me is if you want to break up with someone you don't know how to tell them you can give them a sweater mmm it's kind of a roundabout way I think there's a little bit more directions I love it do they have knit underwear like a knit thong that would be pretty dope Wow that'd be great for KI crochet crotch that's definitely gonna be keys president I belong now I hope I have Keith I'm so nervous I'm gonna give them the sluttiest knitted thing ever which is oh oh you're gonna make a thought I'm like a thong I would love the sparkliest most beautiful blue yarn you may have right over here it has sparkles right inside I used this one too you could use that one too just like you could use too you can also use three but then they just might make you a little tangled I'm already so tangled girls I just hope it covers up his um his atop his little hammers burger got it if I woke these two together to create the main part of the song sure and these can be somehow knit for the strings on the side oh that's very good yes I'm going to make Christmas slutty Oh what all I get to pick somebody this is how it works and it's coming out of this official try guys mug only available trays calm fuck yeah make it something for a baby I don't know honestly whatever I get is probably going in the garbage I think I want to make Wes a little hat I knew think about what kind of yarn I'm gonna pick are we going yarn shopping so my gift is for the farmers and they have a very beautiful living room that has like some gold some blues some Silver's I feel like I should just make their baby match their aesthetic yeah I was gonna ask if you really want the baby Oh blind into the wind so that's oh you know it's really sort of a decoration to the living room oh this is like this but a little less intense I like this so what we're gonna do is we're gonna make four for the beanie like a long sheet and then I'm gonna wrap it around and like sort of seam it up I'm gonna use the Internet to help me out or maybe I'll stop by the Friday night social who am i hoping to pick uh I guess Zach I feel like Zach's always cold yeah my god I get to knit something for sweet little baby corn this is fine I'm just making a gift for Zach it doesn't matter if it's good or not he drinks tea all the time so I want to make him like a koozie for his teacup oh I love to make sure it stays nice and warm thinking of a blue yarn thinking of like a bluish gray this is really nice and thick so you can just get you fewer stitches but be a lot faster you ever mix two types of yarn together you can definitely mix three types of yarn together it just makes it a little more complicated I was just sick with this one alright this is a much bigger yarn than this one what you want to do is use much bigger needles like these these are all so okay so I have my start now and then do I just start knitting now you can just start knitting yeah easy well keep knitting and good luck thank you thank you should I'm just like please get me mad you know I feel like he's got a lot of needs in his life right now really anything you give him hope you like oh oh thank you the guys are used to like hos AK he fucks things up he has fun bumbling around a mess and shit up not today I am going to blow the collective dicks off of my friends no way there's no way there's no way I'm he's no whammies fuck I am no longer excited for this video my secret santa target I have Eugene okay it's very opinionated it's prone to hate anything I make so I really want to WoW him but Eugene is a fashionable person yes I was thinking I can make him a bow tie wonderful yeah I think that's a great idea so I usually recommend a thicker yarn just because that means fewer stitches and a lot faster I'm leaning towards this because this is clearly the Zac color palette so I'm gonna get me started because really all you need to do and make a bow tie is a strip okay I'm just curious you guys do you guys um you do Commission like Commission work right I do I do yeah how much would like the bow tie cost you can see where she did it for us and then where I started it's a pretty obviously different like what's this going what's going on there had this what had that well then if someone did come up to us that's what we're making she was very excited Wow didn't expect to see three guys outside Nitin I am making friends left and right it's kind of a chilly day so I'm having a glass of tea while I knit my tea cozy for Zach wondering if anyone will come up and talk to me asking me what I am doing is it like almost like a cult of people who like when you see people cold cold but you know like the cult of blank what is the bond that you instantly have with knitters talking about the project about how you selected your yarn typically who you're making it for people sometimes have very strong preferences the whole English and Continental thing so it's less like a cult and more like a gang so it just happened I made a new friend probably because I was knitting and definitely not because she was a try guys fan but I never thought this would be a social hobby right I'm in the shed basically in my blanket like a grandma got my yarn set up oh I'm gonna sit by my fire with these nondenominational stockings and I'm on it a bomb-ass present that's my yarn I need that I just sat down to try and knit and I have no clue so what are some ways we can mess up you can add a stitch it just looks kind of big yes that's what they said to do they said it would be better to start big you know you just made me fuck the lady said I need to be 15 inches long I need you to back haha I'm supposed to be meditating yeah you can drop a stitch we are relaxing right now or you can go back the other direction unknowingly it just seems like it should be so simple I just got it yarn and two sticks why is it not easy what's happening Oh God okay don't panic but my needle fell out I won't scream I don't alert the neighbors so my yarn got like snagged in another part and then I started pulling it out and then I just have like this situation going on and I don't know what do at all I am getting a little confused I put my knitting needles needles little boy this is so much easier in the store so this is my piece I really messed up the stitches in the middle I think the word I'm looking for shitty I finished my bowtie Maggie what do you think that's not what you said what the camera wasn't rolling I might start over and do it again which is crazy but like I want this gift to be good it's Sunday morning and I'm having a lovely time knitting this is my progress so far a purl stitch and knit stitch to alternate I'm pretty proud of that I've given myself a little bit of design interest the size of the mug is too small or maybe it's mighty cushy is too large my bread I'm also baking bread this morning pretty far along I've enjoyed the process actually the more I've gotten used to it the more like it is something I do well just sitting and chilling I've been watching some YouTube videos been doing some knitting weirdly I think I get it now the muscle memory is back and I think that I I think I'm excited to do this over so rather than continuing it I'm just gonna stop and I'm gonna see if I can stretch it around the teacup there is something so satisfying about when you get into a groove I actually totally see the appeal here now that I'm not totally fuckin up this past weekend I was finishing up the trevor project video and I hosted Trevor live LA that was a huge time commitment I only have one more night to finish it before our gift exchange and it turns out I'm taking my new friend Hannah to her first drag show and the only thing I can do is try to do it while being entertained by drag queens so we are now at the club and I'm here with Ana and so what's great is that I can expose you to drag and you can maybe help me knit I heard you knit okay I need like octopus it's like smoke the ones with it is that why your name is talking hey Wes you're gonna help me knit yeah looks pretty good oh maybe this is the little space where you get to see the detail oh yes I did it on purpose I'm doing pretty good I my new my new row there's something really nice and almost meditative about it I don't know I kind of feel like I needed this girl I got you girl I wrote a little song about you guys want to learn it and play it people say my friends and as hobby is naughty and when they see us doing it it leaves them in stitches it's something that takes longer when your project is potty but your outcome is as soft as our musical pitches and it's totally fitting that the best part about knitting is that friends nits are close-knit yes friend did our clothes Smith Hey here we are it's time we're gonna give each other the gifts we've been making all weekend long and nobody knows who got who what of course we all were knitting all weekend long you had all of last night well I had to take Hannah to the direct show had to and yeah I promised Ana well up first is that I'm excited to open my gift which one do I think is for me oh yes the beautiful one the only beautiful one thank you to whoever got this gift for thinking of inclusive wrapping oh what a beautiful mug where'd you guys get this mug is that it's not the candy emoji run from try guys i com try guys calm try guys react to your gift wow it's like almost like a pillow so Zack I got you this gift an alternating purl and knit stitch to give it a nice stripe I have a hole there for the handle but then also oh it's just you suck at everyone else can that not come off the mug all right you did you knit it on it yeah just so you guys know I this is not a bit I always love tea I got tea hanging out back here hidden can tell that this tea is already getting a little cold in the future that won't happen oh and this is nice I can do that thing that girls on Instagram do when they're trying to be cute where they go Happy Hanukkah to all my turn yes Merry Christmas Eugene I don't think I've actually physically open two Christmas present in like eight years well well that's horrible cuz my family just we just like venmo each other money well lucky for you you don't just have a gift you got the big boy I get okay you can tell he hasn't done this in a while what is it what is it opal it's a good present ever was this you Zack it was me I wanted to make you something dope so I made you a bowtie thank you you can wear that bowtie yeah I think I'll keep on the Pikachu but it's really it's really good this is my failed first one so you and I could totally match oh we could wear bow ties together all of the T everywhere it looks like P P wow I'm so excited to get my gift I kind of know at this point who got it for me I know that they didn't have as much time but you know what a very busy weekend the fact that they did it at all they could have just given up what is it oh I know what it is it's a string thong in blue squares this is pretty good that's pretty cool yeah hopefully it's your size I think well I have been working out I'm gonna take stuff out of it yes around I think my boss would fall right out of it but yeah it's very wellness so it's two different yarns thank you it's a great beautiful rectangle Eugene it can cover my dick or I can cover something else Hannah did about two rows so this is also made by Hannah so this is Keith's thawne featuring Hannah stocking yep it's a dick stocking what a Christmas has been you guys and I know now that this was made by ki mm-hmm Wow Thank You Keith Oh it's that beautiful footballs actually made very similar to this you tie you bundle just a bunch of yarn around a thing tie it together and then you cut the ends and then it poops out you made the poof ball yeah with the ladies at the shop that's amazing you guys have any picture Wesson that has a little dizzy have a poof ah it almost looks like a crown that way that little little dimples long enough it's a cute little hand I can't believe you did a poof that's so cool yeah thank you thank you for thinking of with I will say that when I got to the end of the Hat and I totally finished it I was like oh I don't have anything to knit anymore this might actually be the first thing that we've done in a try guys video that will genuinely become a hobby of mine I thought it would take so long and that it wouldn't be that fun but as soon as I realized I was doing it for someone else then the whole thing was infused this like I wonder what they can think about it I learned that you probably shouldn't knit in a gay club while watching a drag show god bless us everyone where's you got a new hat yeah well that's fine yeah

  1. I love how Ned Keith and Eugene are happy with who they got to make a present for and zach is like "F** k I got Eugene"?

  2. how about the try guys TRY find where that scientology wife is??? no one has heard from her and shes supposedly not making contact with anyone cause shes doesnt want too??? or nah you dont want to take on the scientology beast???

  3. Y'all are seriously getting meekest to try so many things I would have never thought about doing. This and the pottery video really inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and engage the people who could help me in my community. Thanks!

  4. Eugene are you gay? The bow tie came out Fantastic and so did the baby cap. How did you guys decide to get together and do these videos?

  5. “I learned that you probably shouldn’t knit in a gay club while watching a drag show.”
