The Sims 4 Nifty Knitting adds two new gameplay objects to the game; a rocking chair and a knitting basket. The two go hand-in-hand but can also be enjoyed separately from each other. Both the new objects also come in a variety of styles and colour variants.

Rocking Chair

The rocking chair has four entries in the Build/Buy catalogue, two armless versions and two with arms. Both versions have padded and unpadded options. All the entries in the catalogue have a variety of colour variants as well.

Sims of all ages (toddler-elder) can use rocking chairs but certain age groups have special interactions with the rocking chair not available to other age groups. Toddlers and children can play on the rocking chair. They will rock back and forth wildly while waving their arms and legs in the air. Elders can reminisce in a rocking chair. They will rock back and forth gently while floating memories of days gone by float above their heads. Elders can receive either positive or negative moodlets from reminiscing in a rocking chair.

In addition to being able to play and reminisce, Sims can knit in rocking chairs as long as they have a knitting basket in their inventory. Sims build knitting skill faster while knitting in a rocking chair. They also build knitting skill faster while listening to music and while Inspired. Players can really take advantage of all three skill boosters at the same time to build the knitting skill in record time.

Knitting Basket

The Sims 4 Nifty Knitting: Gameplay Objects Overview

If your Sims want to knit anything, they’ll need a knitting basket. The knitting basket comes in two separate styles in the Build/Buy catalogue. Each style comes in a variety of colour variants.

The knitting basket can be placed in your house as decor, but it won’t be very useful for anything else unless it’s in a Sim’s inventory. Sims can only use the knitting basket to knit clothes and objects when the knitting basket is in their inventory.

Once in a Sim’s inventory, the knitting basket can be selected to knit a variety of objects and clothing pieces that Sims can use to decorate their homes, gift to other Sims, add to their closet (which will make the clothing piece accessible in CAS), donate to charity, or sell on Plopsy.

Clicking the rocking chair or any other seat with a knitting basket in a Sim’s inventory will also allow the Sim to sit down and knit in that spot.
