Overview

Designed to empower knitters with practical knowledge of how yarn becomes fabric and to boost confidence in tackling common obstacles and mistakes made during the process, this knitting how-to guides fiber artists to success in their craft by explaining each word of standard knitting instructions. This illustrated guide offers classically-designed swatch exercises—such as knit-and-purl patterns, cables, shaping, and lace—that can later be combined to create pillow covers, throws, or scarves, in addition to tutorials on how to identify stitches that are properly mounted and master basic stitch movements and math required for each exercise. Promoting a deeper understanding of knitting and its facets and encouraging a bold approach to some of the more complex and daunting knitting styles and designs, this informative manual is essential in assisting knitters of all levels in gaining crafting mastery.

Library Journal
Though veteran knitting instructor Seiffert's first book is intended as a confidence-builder for beginners, most experienced knitters will find something new here. She takes some of the most intimidating aspects of learning to knit, such as understanding gauge and deciphering pattern instructions, and breaks them down in a manner that is practical and simple to understand. The lessons and techniques are reinforced through swatch projects, which are small enough to be portable and quick to finish yet complex enough to teach new skills.
