I absolutely LOVE this book. LOVE. I already had a very basic knowledge of knitting, but this book explained everything I knew more in depth and expanded on it with new information. It eases you from the basics right to the complicated stuff, step by step. The pictures are bright and clear to understand. I typically learn better by watching videos, but this book...just amazing. 100% recommend!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Wanted to review this book because I am an avid charity knitter and always looking for new patterns and ideas.
What a treasure this book is from the very beginning: starts out with the material you will need and all the current up to date needles and yarn weights.
Next is how to start with the yarn and various methods are shown with pictures-very easy to understand. Then the basic knit stitch and from there the world is yours to explore.
The author keeps things simple but moves along to higher levels of accomplishments and the patterns are easy to follow along.
Especially liked the glossary of knitting stitches and how they are done. Most are only a 4 row repeat and the designs can be used in multiple items to knit.
Best part of this book to me is the textured stitches and how they are done using a chart, and written out in full directions row by row.
This reference books should be in your knitting library.
I received this book from Edelweiss by Penguin Group (USA) Inc.. in exchange for my honest review.
