How to Knit: Learn the Basic Stitches and Techniques

We rated this book:


Knitting is a fun and productive hobby, but it can be quite daunting to someone who has never tried it before. What kinds of needles and yarn should I use? How do I cast on? What are the basic stitches, and how can I tell if I’m doing it right? How do I fix a mistake? Leslie Ann Bestor has been knitting for many, many years, and she definitely knows her stuff; with Storey’s new beginner guide How to Knit, Bestor applies her experience and expertise to helping the newbie knitter find their footing. This cute little book, small enough to be easily tucked into your knitting bag, is not a “complete” guide by any stretch, but it does cover everything you need for understanding the basics of knitting. All of the above questions and more are answered, while Bestor’s conversational tone makes the information accessible; reading this book feels like talking with an old friend who just happens to know a lot more about knitting than you do. Topics are clearly explained with step-by-step instructions and effective illustrations. This is a fantastic beginner guide.
