Description

This comprehensive guide covers the complete range of techniques needed to learn basic knitting and then extend to much more complicated work. The clear step-by-step diagrams and 30 interesting patterns will lead any novice through all the skills needed to become an accomplished knitter. The techniques section is arranged according to difficulty, starting with the basics such as casting on, then moving onto intermediate techniques, such as reading patterns and making fancy stitches using knit and purl combinations, then progressing to advanced methods such as colour work, lace, Aran and adapting patterns. The book includes a comprehensive stitch guide, which shows thumbnail photographs of the stitch structures and the page reference where the stitch is discussed. All in all, this is the complete guide to knitting. It is suitable for beginners but, as a stitch reference, will be a useful manual for the shelves of all knitters.
