Dreaming of knitting, or observing another knit, may be thought of as a manifestation of the unconscious mind's attempt to weave together disparate elements of the psyche.

With that being said, knitting can be more complicated than that. It may symbolize the intricate process of integrating various aspects of your selfhood, or the selfhood of others, into a coherent whole. The act of knitting in a dream can also be a metaphor for the psychoanalytic process itself, as it involves the careful unravelling and re-weaving of complex psychological threads. If you're watching someone else knit, it may suggest a desire to understand their psychological makeup, or it could reflect a sense of alienation from your own inner workings.

Dreaming about knitting, or seeing someone else knit, is a spiritual symbol of life's intricate tapestry. Each stitch represents a moment, a decision, a connection, woven together to create your unique existence. If you're knitting, it suggests you're actively participating in shaping your destiny, making conscious choices aligned with your soul's purpose. Watching someone else knit may indicate your spiritual awareness of others' journeys, acknowledging their free will to shape their own destinies. It could also signify a spiritual detachment, a call to reconnect with your own soul's path and actively participate in weaving your life's tapestry.
