The Sims 4 Nifty Knitting Stuff Pack has really grown on me. While there are still some elements that make the pack feel a little bit incomplete, it’s definitely on the worth it list.
There is one really annoying thing about the pack, though. Knitting takes forever. And yes, yes, sure… in real-life knitting stuff takes a long time. But as everyone knows, Sims don’t really have much time.
They’re bound to do something stupid to endanger themselves when you dare look away for just one second. You don’t want your Sims dying before they get to suffer the horrible fate of the Sweater Curse, do you?
So if you want your Sim to knit ALL THE THINGS in the Nifty Knitting Stuff Pack and get them to earn a living selling their goodies on Plopsy, there is a way to speed up the process.
How to knit faster in The Sims 4
Modder RobinKLocksley shared this very useful mod over on ModTheSims.
The mod has three different speed up options to get Sims knitting faster by either 10%, 30% or 50% of the original speed. When downloading the mod (which you can do on ModTheSims), you only need to select one of the speed-up options.
We’ve been testing the option for speeding up knitting by 50% and it is pretty quick. If you still want to retain some element of realism in the time it takes for Sims to knit stuff, we recommend opting for either the 10% or 30% option.
There is currently just one known issue with the mod, as noted in the release file. The modder noted: This does cut short the animation at the moment, I’m working on speeding the animation up in accordance with this.
If this is knit your cup of tea (nope, not sorry at all), that’s fine too. Check out what else we’ve got going on.
