Overview

Newcomers to knitting finally have the book they require: an honest-to-goodness beginner’s guide that provides basic visual instruction geared to a real novice’s needs. Get Knitting! was written with the beginner in mind, and it addresses anyone who has never picked up a needle or held a skein of yarn. The introduction presents the basic tools, techniques, and materials. Lessons in the fundamentals include how to hold the needle and wool, cast the first row of stitches, and knit and purl. Through beautifully photographed projects of increasing complexity, more sophisticated techniques—including advanced stitches, reading patterns, and taking accurate measurements—gradually unfold. Soon anyone will have the skills to create a simple scarf, baby blanket, pillow cover, cardigans, and a handsome pullover complete with vee, crew, and turtleneck variations.
