The knitting skill was added in the Sims 4 Nifty Knitting Stuff Pack. It’s a fun hobby for your sims and can even be a lucrative one! Each level that your sim gains in the knitting skill unlocks new knitable items and interactions. If you want any of those items without spending all the time levelling up the skill, then the knitting skill cheat outlined below in this post is very useful.

How To Enable Cheats

Make the cheat bar appear in the top left hand corner of the screen by pressing:

  • Command + Shift + C on PC.
  • CTRL + Shift + C on Mac.
  • All four triggers on console (e.g. PS4).

Type in “testingcheats on” and press enter to enable the use of cheats.

Knitting Skill Cheat in the Sims 4

To cheat the knitting skill type stats.set_skill_level major_knitting X into the cheat bar after enabling cheats and then press enter. Replace X with the number of the level you desire your sim to have in the knitting skill. 

The cheat bar is not case sensitive, so it doesn’t matter if you use any capital letters in the cheat code or not. It will work either way. Below I have written out the cheat for each level, so that you can just copy and paste the cheat code that you want to use!
