Have you ever watched someone knit and thought that the whole process looks incredibly complicated? In actual fact knitting is not that hard to do at all. Better still, you don’t need to know a lot of complicated stitches to make knitted projects and you don’t need a great deal of expensive equipment to do it either. With this book to help you you will quickly learn how to do the basics: casting on, knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, and casting off.
You are now ready to begin making the projects in the book beginning with a simple scarf. After that you can try making a roll-rim hat using chunky yarn. If you have lots of friends who need Christmas and birthday gifts, who might like to try using the “wee wallet” pattern to make wallets, cell phone holders and more. Finally, when you have practiced your skills, you can make your first sweater. The instructions are written in plain English and you will have no difficulty following the directions.
Clear illustrations, easy-to-understand directions and inspiring photographs makes this book a winning title for knitters of all kinds. Crafters who like to add their own personal touches to their projects will find the book full of tips on how they can go about making their creations uniquely theirs.
