Knitbook The basics & beyond based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This is one GOTTA HAVE book all about knitting. It is ring bound so no broken binding when trying to keep a page open. It has removable projects cards that are printed on stiffer paper than the rest of the book. It even has a DVD for those who want to learn by visual means rather than reading. The sections are divided into: Learning Essentials, Learning DVD, Projects, Photos, charts and illustrations, Stitches, Notes pages and plastic zipper bags. WOW! If you can't find it in this book, you won't find it on the subject of knitting. There are different ways to cast and two are shown. Knitting abbreviations are listed in two different places, one of which is printed on the heavier paper. Types of yarn and needles are discussed. 24 different stitch patterns are listed so you can make an afghan with any of these or try using them on other projects. All in all, this is the best book on learning to knit I have seen in a few years. Even if you are an experienced knitter, the projects included are fun to make up and the patterns are written in an easy to follow manner. This will make a great Christmas or birthday gift for that special knitter you know.
I purchased this book after looking at every book in the store and I am very satisfied with it. I was able to teach myself how to knit with only this book and a few online video clips. I admit that I haven't looked at the disk that came with the book yet but I highly recomend you purchase this book if you are looking for an easy to understand book on how to knit or a referance to look back to.
