Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Former yarn shop owner and knitwear designer Hammett (Ready, Set, Knit Cables) takes a basics-and-beyond approach in Creative Publishing's latest addition to their "101" series of how-to books. Each chapter is devoted to a different skill, starting with the basics and moving on to more advanced techniques, such as colorwork and lace knitting. The DVD that accompanies the book includes tutorials that give knitters who are visual learners the opportunity to see the various techniques in action. VERDICT Beginning knitters interested in branching out beyond knit and purl will appreciate Hammett's straightforward approach and simple projects.
