Great guide to start knitting. I've knitting before based on internet instructions and never had much success. This book is written in such a way to be easier to follow and with just the right amount of detail.
I am an experienced knitter and I have wanted to teach my nieces, but I must admit that I have not had the patience, however with the help of the excellent instructions and really instructive and clear pictures it was easy.There are not only instructions but also a guide on yarn types (DK, chunky, fine) and needle sizes and types which is helpful to know when you start out. I have knitted since Grade 1, but even I learned a new method of casting on from this book. Once you have mastered plain, purl and rib, you can knit almost anything as those are the basic stitches and everything else is just a variation of those.I suggest knitting a few squares (you will learn how from this book) in different yarns just to get the feel and get your tension right, after that you are good to go and can let your self loose on scarves, jumpers, cushion covers and hats.Knitting is a wonderfully relaxing hobby for anyone who is creative and who loves to experiment with colour and texture - what I love it that if you work in a job or are a taxi-mommy where you have to wait around a lot, this passes the time and knitting is very portable - what's more it's sociable as you can do it while talking or watching telly.
As a beginner, I didn't have any difficulty understanding the illustrations and terms being used, I liked how everything was laid out! I've always wanted to learn this craft and this book made everything easy for me, so I give it a five-star. Moreover, what's great is that it included important facts about the materials like the needles and yarns, a great guide when buying my first set.I will definitely recommend this to my niece!
My 5-year old wanted to learn knitting. I looked for a very simple guide to teach us how to knit a scarf.Having learned to knit as a child, but completely forgotten, I needed something to help me get going as well.This book was a great find - full color illustrations and step-by-step instructions very well made.
Basics only. Cast on, knit, purl, cast off. Does not go beyond dishcloth & scarf. To advance will require additional book(s) as this does not discuss gauge or blocking.Photos could have been better for the Paperwhite & other greyscale devices. Authors please take note.
I have been wanting to learn how to knit for a good while know. I am so glad I fo und this book. It has all the information I need about knitting. This includes the material I need to get and the basic stiches. What I like best is that the explai n explains really well for a complete newbie all the basic stiches step by step and with pictures so you have an idea of what you are doing. Highly recommemded book for anyone wanting to learn to knit.
This is a great book for someone learning how to knit or for someone like me who has been knitting since she was a girl but only knows the two stitches her Nana taught her. I immediately picked up some new patterns that I could make even with just my two stitches and that will make my TV projects a lot more interesting and better to look at!
I learned some knitting from my roommate in college but never took it beyond a scarf. Now that I'm retired and have more time on my hands, I've often thought about taking it up again. I found that trying to remember how to do it just wasn't happening. This book is a great re-introduction to knitting for me. Having just some very basic understanding already, this book refreshed my memory and quickly brought the concepts and steps back to me. The step by step instructions with pictures really helped me.I also enjoyed the parts on types of needles and yarn and the names of stitches other than knit and purl that I had never known. I have wandered through the yarn sections at my favorite craft store and am amazed at the variety of yarns now available. Makes me want to start a knitting project right away!I think the author did it right for a book for beginners. Just enough information to form a solid basis for learning to knit plus a quick and easy pattern so the reader can actually have a finished project when done with the book! Highly Recommended!
