An unusual itinerary: where to find knitting cafés and tearooms in Paris…

Knit one, purl one…knitting has definitively become a trending activity. In honour of our grandmothers’ know-how, an extension of the DIY (Do It Yourself) concept, or simply as a hobby, these days friends are knitting over coffee!
The café-tricot (knitting café) is, as the name implies, a place where you can sip a tea or coffee and knit at the same time. Paris is beautiful has chosen 4 regular knitting cafés just for you. Needles at the ready…start knitting!

Our first stop is in the 13th arrondissement at OisiveThé et Tricot, the first Parisian knitting café. A temple devoted to knitting and crochet, this restaurant-tearoom is a paradise for knitwear enthusiasts. Their knitting group meets every week on Mondays and Wednesdays from 7.30 to 10.30 pm. Places are limited to ensure the comfort of those participating, so it is advisable to book your spot online first!

Next we head for Tugalik, an organic restaurant in the 6th. An odd location, you might think, but here you will also find the “maille’s bar” (knitwear bar) organised by Fée des Mailles, an online shop devoted to knitwear (material, patterns etc.). The group meets twice a month, the first Monday from 3.30 to 7 pm and the third Wednesday from 5 to 7 pm.

We cross the Pont Royal to swing by Brentano’s bookshop in the 2nd arrondissement. Every Saturday, a group of knitters of all ages meets among the bookshelves, novices and experts alike, to spend some studious, yet entertaining time together.
To complete the tour, we go to La Maizon in the 17th. This charitable, solidarity-based association welcomes people to the 17th arrondissement Café Tricot on the first Friday of every month from 6.30 to 8.30 pm. A contribution of €5 towards drinks and other refreshments is requested.
Other knitting cafés and tearooms are also organised around the city, but in a less regular way. To keep up to date, follow the threads on the trcotin.fr forum!
