Overview

It’s cool, it’s chic, it’s got right-from-the-beginning instructions, and features both knitting and crochet in equal measure: Knit.101 is like no other guide on the market. Geared to 18–35 year-olds, this fun manual, with its sassy tone and witty writing, will grab this fast-growing group of new stitchers. Even those who have never before touched needles and yarn will easily follow the detailed directions, which explain everything from winding up the skein of wool and making a slipknot to casting on, purling, and binding off. Reading charts and schematics, doing basic stitches, getting the right yarn tension, understanding gauge, sizing to fit, fixing the inevitable mistakes—all the fundamentals are covered in clear language and in a logical progression. But you’ll also find unique features on recycling yarn, lotions to soothe cracked and dry hands, knitting happenings and cyber-groups to join, and even songs to keep you in “stitches” as you work.
