After the fantastic success of Knitty Gritty: Knitting for the Absolute Beginner, Aneeta Patel is back to teach knitters how to advance to the next stage. With detailed instructions, and photographs to accompany you at every step, Knitty Gritty: The Next Steps shows you how to knit lace, how to use beads, and how to read and create charts to knit Fair Isle and intarsia patterns using different colours. You will also learn the secrets of knitting in the round, so you too can knit socks like a pro!
Once again, using only plain English, Aneeta teaches budding knitters all the tips and tricks of the trade, so that these patterns are accessible to anyone who has mastered the very basics of knitting. With projects including jumpers for adults and kids, gloves, hats, socks, and an array of seasonal knits, Knitty Gritty: The Next Steps is everything you need on the road to advanced knitting.
