Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
11/24/2014
Unlike many newbie knitting guides, Leapman's teaches and inspires in equal measure. No more suffering through dull projects until reaching the good stuff—this is the good stuff! The introductory material in "The Basics" section contains clear illustrations of each stitch and elementary stitch combinations, along with easy to follow directions on shaping garments; casting on and binding off; using double-pointed or circular needles; fixing mistakes; and blocking finished projects. Color photographs by Alexandra Grablewski of swatch samples further inspire beginners to pick up their needles and continue right on to the second half, which includes covetable projects from the drapey "Let it Flow" jacket knit in stockinette stitch from side to side, to the quick, striped tie "Tie One On" done entirely in garter stitch. Nothing is dumbed down, not "Color Me Mine," a baby blanket knit on the diagonal, nor the simple and adorable decorative stuffed hearts of "Home is Where the Heart Is." Luckily, the more involved projects aren't too difficult to tackle using just the author's clear instructions and her helpful advice. (Sept.)
