Autonomous Knitting Fix

Fixes an issue causing autonomous knitting to drop out of the action queue.


A sim with knitting skill and a knitting bag in their inventory should be able to start a knitting project or resume an in-progress knitting project autonomously.

You’ll see a “Knit” action briefly appear in the sim’s action queue, and then it will immediately cancel.

You can read more about this at EA Answers HQ: Sims no longer autonomously knit. If you have this issue, make sure you visit the bug thread and click the “Me Too” button.

This mod fixes an issue with the knitting tuning files and also reduces the autonomous knitting cooldown timer from 48 hours to 4 hours.


  • This mod is for players who own Nifty Knitting stuff pack on PC/Mac.
  • The mod rewrites the tuning file for Knitting Crafting Phase and Knitting Autonomous Cooldown Buff. If you have any other mods that change the same tuning files, they may clash with this mod.
